About this show

The performance piece CADENCE: HOME offers an intimate, honest and compassionate entry into the world of four veterans returning to New York from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is a site-specific theatrical experience at Manhattan's Metro Baptist Church, as the audience is invited to a memorial for Scott Matthews, a character based on a real man, a soldier who died in Afghanistan. It begins and ends with his memorial. is a tribute to all of the men and woman who served, both those who made it home and those who did not. Cadence: Home was developed over nearly two years from Insight conversations with more than 40 returning vets - learning about their decisions, their fears, their hopes and their dreams. Guided by the Insight approach to documentary-style theatre, this theatrical experience helps close the gaps in understanding and compassion that divide military and nonmilitary civilians from each other through the dramatic insight of the performing arts.
