"Amal" - National Veterans Theater Festival

Frogwater with Jason Moon show on Saturday, May 25, 2019 from 7:30 PM to 8:20 PM

Presented by The Combat Hippies Approximately 70 minutes Amal (hope in Arabic) is a theater/spoken word piece written and performed by the Combat Hippies, an ensemble of Puerto Rican veterans of the Iraq War, and was developed and directed by award winning theater artist Teo Castellanos. It delves into the impact of war on both combatants and noncombatants as people of color, shares experiences of veteran’s adjustment to life after war, as well as that of refugees and asylum seekers from war-torn countries. The piece will be influenced by an aesthetic we are calling “Afro Rican Punk.”

Milwaukee Repertory Theater - Stiemke Studio
From the Milwaukee Rep's website: "The Stiemke Studio is located on the ground floor of the Milwaukee Center Rotunda in the northwest corner near the gold escalator. The Stiemke Studio black box is a blank canvas for the designers; typically seating just over 200, patrons may be seated in two sections of seats looking down at either side of the action taking place in an aisle down the middle or more traditional banks of raked seating. Everything in this space can be changed to best suit the director’s concept for the show and no two shows in this space are alike."
