ANOTHER KIND OF COURAGE features moving performances by veterans artists and family members expressing their experiences with war and homecoming. The poets are Jan Barry, Kevin Basl, Chantelle Bateman, Jeremy Stainthorp Berggren, Lovella Calica, Jacob George, Charles H. Johnson, Jennifer Pacanowski, Brian Turner, Jon Turner and Eli Wright. The powerful, original music is written by Tomás Doncker and Yusef Komunyakaa and performed by Tomás Doncker & The True Groove All-Stars. Another Kind of Courage performance was conceived and directed by Martin Jude Farawell for the Dodge Poetry Festival at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Poets spoke their truths, bringing their stories to the 17,000 in attendance at the festival – moving some in the audience to tears, but more importantly, educating and advocating for change. This film of the performance is a collaboration between Warrior Writers and the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, produced by Lovella Calica, Lynn Estomin and Martin Farawell, and directed/edited by Lynn Estomin.
