TIME: 8 PM
Winner of the 2016 Community Impact Award from UNC-Chapel Hill, Silhouettes of Service (SOS) is a 75-minute solo docudrama theatre piece created and performed by Gregory DeCandia.
SOS is derived verbatim from 26 interviews of soldiers ranging from ROTC cadet to Colonel, serving from World War II to the present, and offering perspectives across race, gender, and sexual orientation.
This project was commissioned by Ignition Arts and workshopped in The Process Series at UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Communication under the direction of Joseph Megel. Touring performances were held at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Swain Hall, North Carolina Museum of History, Luciano Theatre at Cumberland County College in New Jersey, and the Oklahoma Contemporary in Oklahoma City.
