Poetic Theater Productions is back with a special animated virtual presentation of Veteran Voices: The Interview Sessions: Donna Zephrine on Tuesday, January 18, 7pm (EST). The Interview Sessions is a series of intimate artist conversations interviewing veterans whose art as actors, poets, visual artists, and playwrights inspires. The series highlights the individuals behind the art, and the importance of art on their journey as veterans reintegrating into civilian life. In 90 minutes, fellow veterans Jenny Pacanowski (featured in NY Times, ABC, Turner Classics) and Omar Columbus (CA and NY poet and gallery curator) connect with the featured artist, share clips of past work, and share new works in development. Audiences are welcome and encouraged to ask questions. Join in and get to know the veterans (and family members of veterans) behind the voices you hear in Poetic's shows.
This week, the interview will be with Donna Zephrine. Having served two tours in Iraq, Donna will speak on the experience of serving while being diagnosed with multiple learning disabilities and share her experience, perspective, and artistic process.
