About this event

Join us for a Memorial Day celebration hosted by Keshet and NMPBS. A virtual screening of the multi-award winning Exit12 film "Moved by War” will be followed by the premiere of a new piece choreographed during Exit 12's NM residency, and a panel discussion with the artists of Exit12. Join us as Exit 12 joins dance and stories about the effects of war -- both to heal and also change the stereotypes of the Veteran community.

About "Moved by War":After two tours in Fallujah during the Iraq War, US Marine and Combat Veteran Román Baca came home ravaged with depression, anxiety, and anger. With few places to turn, Román 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 Román 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.
