Closer Than They Appear
StreetSigns Center for Literature and Performance and The UNC Process Series present:
"Closer Than They Appear," a multi-media theatre piece written by Christine Evans that tells the charged story of an encounter between an American soldier and an Iraqi girl blogger through the lens of the technologies that connect them. Inspired by the convergence of video game environments, virtual technology, and military research, "Closer Than They Appear" is the world's first theatrical production licensed to incorporate animated landscapes from Virtual Iraq, a virtual-reality program based on war video games and used in veterans PTSD therapy.
