The Troupe

Ta’ziyeh, a traditional theatrical form from Iran that has gone virtually unnoticed until recently, made its American debut at the Lincoln Center Festival under the direction of Mohammad Ghaffari (an Iranian director/actor who has been living in exile in NYC since 1979). This documentary is a personal look at Ta'ziyeh through the eyes of this man, who has championed it as a theatrical artform since 1975. At its core, The Troupe celebrates the spirit of art and its ability to transcend cultural and political boundaries, as it entertains us with a colorful cast of characters who rally around Mohammad as he conducts his swan song.
