Reza Abdoh – Theatre Visionary (Doco)

image_0_1414740905This is a documentary about the late theatre director, Reza Abdoh.

The Iranian-born American artist was known for his large productions and the impact he had on the industry in the early 90s.

He died in 1995 at the age of 32. This documentary explores his life with over 46 interviews.

I am personally not interested in this kind of outlandish theatre, but judging by the six minute promo it looks to be a fantastically produced doco. The lighting and sound looks perfect in the interviews.

If you’re into theatre, I suspect you have heard of Reza Abdoh and understand the effect he had on the industry.

If the rest of the production gets funded, keep an eye out for it in Spring 2015!
