ONLINE BROADCAST—Women Veterans Eurydice Project at Los Angeles Opera

July 25, 2020 @ 6:00 am8:00 am

ONLINE—Debuted at the Los Angeles Opera in March 2020, Sarah Ruhl’s play Eurydice tells the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice from a contemporary woman’s point of view, with music by Matthew Aucoin. In response, Gail Soffer of the Mindful Veteran Project has led a series of workshops for women veterans to explore the ancient and modern versions of the story and share their own versions of finding themselves in the land of the dead/the underworld/the darkness and making their way back up into the land of the living and light – in spoken word, music, and art. Join the Mindful Veteran Project at 1:00pm (PDT) on DISH Network (Channel 9415), DirecTV (Channel 348), or Free Speech TV (www.freespeech.org) as these platforms broadcast and livestream a short video of the panel discussion that took place in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Music Center earlier this year. Then follow the group over to Zoom at 1:30pm (PDT) to continue the storytelling and conversation as the Women Veterans Eurydice Project explores the inspiring stories of women’s journeys “into the underworld and back.” Saturday, July 25, 2020 1:00 -3:00pm Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83268033918 Free; no RSVP required. Both segments of this virtual event are free and require no RSVP. So as not to disturb the storytelling and conversation, entry to the Zoom group will close 5 minutes after we begin.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities through a Humanities for All Quick Grant.
