Episode Summary

The National Theater of the Deaf
Deaf young actors perform two theater pieces composed and choreographed for them by Joe Layton (a music-dance rendition of "Three Blind Mice") and J. Ranelli's montage of dreams, "Promenade." David Hays, Artistic Director of the Company, appears on camera and explains the group's method and aesthetic. Signing (hand gestures and finger-spelling) is accompanied by some voice-over commentary. This remarkable theater group whose work has been uniquely successful under the direction of scenic designer David Hays demonstrates its skill as performers in two short pieces. Hays discusses the works' themselves and their importance to the company of deaf actors as they perform a musical piece called "Curtain Raiser" based on the nursery rhyme, "Three Blind Mice"; and, "Promenade," a dramatic work on dreams based on actual dreams of members of the company.moreless
