The Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) artists in Deaf Crows create unique visual art and theatrical spectacles. Mythologized dreams and life journeys from the DHH perspective are designed to include audiences from all backgrounds: ASL users, oral DHH, hearing, and people from all backgrounds, languages, and cultures. The Deaf Crows use mask, puppetry, clown, American Sign Language poetry, mime, magic, and even a little bit of circus in their visceral, highly physical and visually captivating performances. Performances include Deaf Crows (2016-2017), Nay’s Story (2016), and the Crows’ newest and most ambitious show yet, Apple Time (2018-2019).
In their gallery installations, such as the fairytale Deaf Forest (Dunlop Art Gallery, 2017), the Deaf Crows create immersive, interactive environments that invite audiences on a journey into the worlds traveled by the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The Deaf Crows have performed in Regina at the Artesian Theatre, the University of Regina, and the Regina Art Gallery. The Deaf Forest has been exhibited at the Dunlop Art Gallery in Regina, and at the Regina Public School Board.
