years, years is a performance by Deer Park that follows the resonance of its title: a sense of time passing, of journey, of rhythm, of memory, of desire, of times to come. It is a contemplation on heritage and destiny, on being absent, on being stuck, on being-there. It is a journey into the woods with all necessary attempts at (dis)orientation.
The performance continues Deer Park's unique explorations into a new genre of musical theatre: its use of rhythmical structures, detailed layered atmospheres, soundscapes of text, live and recorded music can affect, confront, confuse, challenge, stimulate and inspire the spectator's sensory and intellectual faculties.
Deer Park was formed in 2002 at Dartington College of Arts and is currently based in Bristol, UK.
