A work of righteous vengeance.

Deer Woman is a solo warrior woman work of righteous vengeance, starring Cherish Violet Blood.

It is a companion piece to In Spirit, the work that planted the seeds for company ARTICLE 11. While In Spiritis a solo performer work that presents the voice of a young missing and murdered girl, Deer Woman is the story of an adult sister left behind.

In a country where 1,600 Indigenous women and girls are recognised as being missing and/or murdered, Lila refuses to stand idly by. Lila is a big sister missing a little one. She is the daughter of a hunter who taught her all he knew. She’s ex-army, but can’t seem to leave all that training behind. Circumstances converge and Lila finds the perfect opportunity to avenge her baby sister’s murder while exercising the skills the Canadian government trained into her.

Please note: Deer Woman contains graphic historical and contemporary violence and is suitable only for ages 16+
