Closer Than They Appear and Panel Discussion

September 20, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - September 24, 2017 @ 10:30 pm

Closer Than They Appear tells the colliding stories of Michael, an African American veteran undergoing virtual reality therapy for PTSD, and Zaynab, a teenager from Fallujah blogging during the Iraq war. It explores the haunted human lives—both American and Iraqi—that shadow the digital surfaces through which we wage, view, and recover from war. The play blends scripted live performance with projections developed from the animated landscapes of Virtual Iraq, a virtual-reality program based on video-game graphics and developed as a therapy tool for US veterans suffering from PTSD. Featuring Elisabeth Lewis Corley, Trevor Johnson, and Smita Misra.
