Soldier Songs is produced by Beth Morrison Projects in association with Newspeak
Film commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects and the Holland Festival
Film created by Bill Morrison
Soldier Songs is an evening-length multimedia event from composer David T. Little that combines elements of theater, opera, rock-infused-concert music, and animation to explore the perceptions versus the realities of the Soldier, the exploration of loss and exploitation of innocence, and the difficulty of expressing the truth of war. Music can be easily co-opted to serve a political or ideological message or it can equally be a vehicle for reflection, engagement, and emotional connection, as is seen in this gripping music-theatre work. The performance is further enhanced with video and film from Bill Morrison.
