Elliot: A Soldier’s Fugue

by Quiara Alegría Hudes

Directed by Becca Claire



Bryant Gipull Garcia - Stage Manager
Noelani Montas - Production Designer
Anthony Martinez-Briggs - Sound Designer
Jazmin Brown - Video Editor

“A poetic view at the cyclical nature of war and the experiences of those involved. The musicality of the language eases the reality of the content to make it seamlessly unfolded with only four characters, millions of stories, and 39 pages. A filmed endeavor with the fifth character being design, this piece in the Spring of 2021, directed by Becca Claire, ambitiously hopes to change the perspective of war’s generational toll and bring humanity to those painted inhumane within societal standards.”
