“Vaudevillians of the first rank.” NOLA Defender

 
Foreign to Myself is the latest work from the critically-acclaimed New Orleans theater company, Goat in the Road Productions. Following research into the history and science of trauma, the company has created this richly-tapestried performance that explores the many ways victims remember how to navigate the world, and the inherent difficulties of recovery. In this visually stunning production, performers utilize historical accounts, personal interviews, scientific research, dark humor, immersive sound design, and precise physicality to explore an unsettlingly common occurrence.
 

“Then you get out of the military and you try to integrate back—you do integrate back into the civilian world, but you quickly realize that nobody else is thinking that way, nobody else is thinking that everything they do is for a team.” —Smith&True, 2014

 

Less than one half of one percent of U.S. citizens currently serve in the armed forces, creating a an experience gap between Veterans and civilians. Goat in the Road has spent the last two plus years connecting with military Veterans, families, and medical experts to build this fast-moving, darkly funny play about the daily life of the returning Vet.
