Told from seven different perspectives, Poetic Theater Productions’ Goliath tells one young soldier’s war story, from home to the front and back again. Using a poetic landscape inspired by Ntozake Shange, a Greek chorus and spoken word in the style of Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry, Goliath is a theatrical meditation on war and masculinity; a glimpse into what we do during times of war and of what it means to love when violence is part of the norm.

The performance featured opening poetry by Warrior Writers NYC and a post-show conversation Iraq Army Veterans BR McDonald (Director, Veteran Artist Program), Nicole Goodwin, Paul Wasserman and Jenny Pacanowski (Veterans Sanctuary), along with Veteran Air Force Pilot James A. Moad, who taught War & Literature at the Air Force Academy from 2006-2010. These panelists discussed the pressing issues facing veterans today and the importance of the arts for Veterans for both healing and storytelling.
