Opus 3 Artists is proud to begin touring BASETRACK LIVE in 2015-2016 and 2016-2017. Named one of the top 10 performances in 2014 by The New York Times, BASETRACK LIVE is an extraordinary work of documentary theater. An ambitious collaboration between award-winning theatre company En Garde Arts and corpsmen from the 1st Battlion, 8th Marines out of the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina (Marine 1/8), BASETRACK LIVE powerfully portrays the impact of war on veterans, and their families. Two actors play the real life characters of AJ and Melissa Czubai., a young Marine and his wife. We follow their journey through his deployment to Afghanistan and back home again, the birth of their child while he is overseas and his injury that sends him home. Based on the website One-Eight Basetrack launched by Teru Kuwayama, featuring photographs by Balazs Gardi and a small group of independent journalists, BASETRACK LIVE brings their story to light along with other Marines with whom AJ served and shows the transformation of ordinary people fundamentally changed by the remarkable experience of fighting a war. BASETRACK LIVE does not represent these characters as either heroes or victims. Instead, it shows a complicated and sensitive portrayal of how war effects us all.
