Re-Entry: A Performance Tribute to Veterans is a Delaware Division of the Arts supported project directed and choreographed by 2017 fellowship recipient A.T. Moffett. This dynamic performance piece begins with WWII and moves forward in time to present day military operations. Re-Entry blends dance choreography, original music, historic artifacts, and literary research with storytelling based on interviews with veterans and their families.


WORKSHOP: Saturday, October 21 at the Delaware Art Museum, 10 AM – Noon

2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington, DE 19806

The Re-Entry Veterans Workshop invites veterans and civilians to join together in a dialogue about the American re-entry process. Participants will explore service-related songs that were popular throughout the decades, as well as share stories about their own individual and shared experiences during times of war.

They will also work together to analyze and create lyrics for a unifying song reflecting themes of veteran and civilian life. These original lyrics will be displayed during the culminating performance of the project on November 11th at the Baby Grand. Select pieces of the Re-Entry: A Performance Tribute to Veterans interdisciplinary project will be premiered.

This workshop will be facilitated by A.T. Moffett, the director of the Re-Entry: A Performance Tribute to Veterans project, and Marielle Kraft, a MD middle school educator. If you are a veteran, know a veteran, or are a civilian interested in participating, please contact A.T. Moffett at atmoffett@gmail.com.
