Basetrack Live draws on the power of individual stories to examine the collective experience of those who have served in America’s longest war. Adapted from the wildly popular Facebook page and website of photographs and videos taken in Afghanistan by embedded journalist Teru Kuwayama, Basetrack is a multidisciplinary work at the intersection of theater, music, new media, journalism and technology.
Two actors perform verbatim texts from servicemen and their families.
An electro-acoustic score is performed throughout with a DJ/VJ triggering a cascade of images that inhabit the stage. Basetrack uses theater as a bridge between the military community and the broader public to spark a conversation about the legacy of war upon our veterans, their families and the American public.
