At 18, Lance Corporal Elliot Ortiz crossed over to Iraq. At 19, he received the Purple Heart. Now, back from active duty, Elliot is anointed a hometown hero. As he comes to terms with his memories of war, the military experiences of Elliot's father and grandfather unfold, revealing startling similarities that unite the Ortiz men across time. As Elliot's tale moves back in time, the stories of his father, mother and grandfather move forward until past and present inevitably collide, wringing love and beauty from devastation. Melding poetic dreamscape with stream-of-consciousness narrative, Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue explores the unspoken connections between individuals, across time and generations. It is presented as part of the 2006 Impact Festival. No Performances Saturday, October 7th at 2:00 P.M. Tuesday, October 17th at 8:00 P.M.
