Stetson University presents Reflections on Vietnam: An Oral History Performance Saturday, November 14th and Sunday, November 15th at 8 p.m., in Stetson Theatre Arts’ “Second Stage” located inside the Museum of Art, 600 N. Woodland Blvd., adjacent to the DeLand campus.
Complementing the Vietnam Memorial Remembrance Site that will be dedicated on Saturday, Nov. 14, at 11 a.m., Stetson University’s Theatre Arts Department will be presenting an oral history performance about the Vietnam War.
Reflections of Vietnam: An Oral History Performance will be honoring the experiences of the American soldiers that fought in the Vietnam War. Five talented theatre arts students will be reading aloud several letters written by soldiers during while serving in Vietnam. The production sheds light on the way these soldiers lived their daily lives in Vietnam. In many ways, these letters offer a counter-narrative to the public story that was being told about the War in Vietnam.
For this production, the theatre arts department will be collaborating with the digital arts department by producing special video montages and still photos for the production. These digital art creations are meant to juxtapose archival video footage of architects of the Vietnam War, such as President Johnson, alongside more personal photos and video clips of the soldiers in the field.
