Part of the CAC's 2016-2017 season, Foreign to Myself is an ensemble built performance that examines the shifting identity of the returning military veteran. Based on research into the history and science of trauma, along with dozens of interviews with post-deployment military personnel from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, GRP explores the many ways returning veterans navigate the world, and the inherent difficulties of re-entry.
