ASU Gammage says
In HOLDING IT DOWN, brilliant Jazz composer/musician Vijay Iyer and acclaimed spoken word poet Mike Ladd explore the experiences of diverse American veterans of post-9/11 wars through the medium of veteran's dreams. Ladd's lyrical adaptations of these accounts are juxtaposed with Iyer's lush, potent music and with first-person poetic contributions from Maurice Decaul, a writer who served with the Marines in Iraq, and Air Force veteran and drone pilot Lynn Hill. Decaul and Hill's original, brave, from-the-gut contributions are performances that become the soul of this beautiful, sometimes difficult and moving project.
