Eddo Stern: Vietnam Romance

Eddo Stern (UCLA) (Writing): $10,000.00 for Vietnam Romance.

Vietnam Romance serves to investigate and reveal the ongoing renegotiation of collective memory in the United States about the war it “lost.” In proposing an innovative, hybrid form for this project–a combination of role-play and computer game elements with live, theatrical staging–I seek to unify the emotive, psychological power of the dramatic form as a communal or public experience with the personal implications of choice and decision-making (and its consequences) enabled by gameplay.
