Poetic Theater Production of "GOLIATH"


Cultural Arts and Diversity in conjunction with Colleges 9 & 10, and Porter College presents the Poetic Theater Production of GOLIATH

Returning home from a war without purpose, David searches for his remaining humanity while his family and friends try to reconcile this war-torn veteran with their beloved son, brother, husband and friend. Written by a slam poet turned playwright in the style of Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry and inspired strongly by the choreopoetic style of Ntozake Shange, "Goliath" provides a tough perspective on war, masculinity and the breaking point of human conscience. Told from seven different perspectives, it tells the tale of one young soldier’s war story, from home to the front and back again. Using a poetic landscape inspired by Ntozake Shange, a Greek chorus and spoken word in the style of Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry, "Goliath" is a theatrical meditation on war and masculinity; a glimpse into what we do during times of war and of what it means to love when violence is part of the norm.
