Moved by War

Light Hall Theater

Film screening, Q & A and 60 minute movement workshop

RSVP requested, seating inside Light Hall is limited.

After two tours in Fallujah during the Iraq War, US Marine and Combat Veteran Roman Baca came home ravaged with depression, anxiety, and anger. With few places to turn, Roman went back to his first passion, ballet, as a way to cope — and discovered that through dance he was able to “reprogram” himself and begin to heal.

This inspired Roman to start Exit 12 — a New York-based dance company led by Veterans and military families. Through dance and choreography, Exit 12 tells stories about the effects of war — both to heal themselves and also to change the perceptions and stereotypes of the Veteran community.

Workshop description:

Exit12’s veteran/civilian movement workshop. Repurposing movement; transforming trauma.

This workshop is designed to bridge cultural gaps through shared movement, transform traumatic experiences into expressive

choreographic themes, and inspire participants to push beyond their comfort zones. Veterans and civilians will engage in movement creation, self-esteem building, empathy enrichment, and teamwork.
