Poetic Theater Productions presents Veteran Voices: The Interview Sessions, a new series of intimate artist conversations interviewing veterans whose art as actors, poets, visual artists, and playwrights are featured frequently in Poetic Theater Productions' programming. The new 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 previous Veteran Voices performances, and share new works in development. Audiences are welcome and encouraged to ask questions. Get to know the veterans (and family members of veterans) behind the voices you hear in Poetic's shows.
Hear from Maria Salazar on February 27, 7-8:30pm (EST). Maria is a Peruvian-American sculptor, painter, poet, and a former logistics specialist in the Marine Corps. She founded the nonprofit project Claymore Vets whose mission is to use creative exploration with clay to provide veterans with a safe outlet to ignite interpersonal dialogue to foster reconnection and growth.
