A group of Iranian deaf actors will perform in Washington, DC Saturday. Mehr-Ayeen is taking part in QuestFest, an international festival that's held once every two years. Participants use other forms of communication in their presentations, including movement, dance and digital media. Mehr-Ayeen will use movement and dance to share an epic poem written Persian poet Ferdowsi written around the year 1000 which encourages wisdom and justice . After the free presentation, the actors will hold an open forum with help from American and Farsi sign language interpreters.
