Theater of War in NYC and KSFR Interview

For Veteran's Day Bloomberg Headquarters invited us to participate in Bryan Doerries Theater of War hosted at Bloomberg in NYC to honor the Veteran Community.

Theater of War is an innovative public health project that presents reading of ancient Greek plays as a catalyst for town hall discussions about the challenges faced by service members, veterans, and their caregivers and families today. Using Sophocles' plays to forge a common vocabulary for openly discussing the impact of war on individuals, families, and communities and understanding between diverse audiences. Each performance is followed by community panelist remarks and a facilitated discussion by it's Artistic Director Bryan Doerries.

Ed Jany, who put the event together, introduced the event in honor of Veterans Day.

A program, pen and journal was placed on every seat to record thoughts for discussion after the readings.
Founder and Executive Director Rick Iannucci speaks about Horses For Heroes work with veterans and active military.

Artistic Director of Theater of War Bryan Doerries who adapted the plays for public view introducing each Act (scene).

A big shout out to these actors Obi Abili, Kathryn Erbe, and John Turturro for a powerful performance!

Horses For Heroes Programs Director and Co-Founder, Nancy De Santis (far left), and Alroy Billiman former US Army and Cowboy Up! Graduate/Instructor (far right) were honored to sit as panelists along with two wonderful Vietnam veterans (*apologies*names unknown). The purpose of the panel is to discuss veteran experiences and Bryan Doerries facilitates the conversation to include the audience.
