    Voices from Guantánamo

    Read the Offoffoff review

    A dramatization of poems written by detainees held at Guantanamo Bay. These poems, some originally written in toothpaste, others scrawled on foam drinking cups and passed to attorneys, were recently published by the University of Iowa Press (Poems From Guantánamo: The Detainees Speak. 2007) in conjunction with The Center For Constitutional Rights and Amnesty International.

    Although the piece can not help but have a political context, we intend to focus on the dramatization of the poetry and the individual stories of the men behind the poems.

    The poems, along with a narrative outlining the events leading up to each man’s detention, were adapted for the stage by Duane Mazey, founder of Actors & Poets Group, and directed by New York actor-director Carlo D’amore (Latinologues on Broadway). With original music by Dave Hall.
