These initial workshops will bring together aspects of the CONTACT project training and development processes, including ally work, physical and vocal training, writing, and performance composition. Materialdeveloped in the workshops will act as foundational content for a February 2015 performance installation, a collaboration among The Arts at CIIS, Veterans Book Project and the CONTACT project.
