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 Live is a multidisciplinary work at the intersection of theatre, music, new media, journalism and technology. Created by Edward Bilous, director of the Center for Innovation in the Arts at the Juilliard School, adapted by award-winning writer Jason Grote (Mad Men, Smash) and scored by composer Michelle DiBucci (Wendigo soundtrack), Basetrack Live uses theatre as a bridge between the military community and the broader public to spark a conversation that looks unflinchingly and honestly at the legacy of war upon our veterans.
