Parables of War

Opened Friday, June 5, 2015

Using MacArthur ‘Genius’ Award-winning choreographer Liz Lerman’s theatrical performance piece as a point of departure, PARABLES OF WAR witnesses the journey of three men who are in one way or another all casualties of war: Bill Pullman, the actor; Keith Thompson, the dancer; and Josh Bleill, the former Marine. Transcending performance, ‘Parables’ explores the intricate nexus that exists between art and artist, between presentation and personal narrative, and between historical truth and contemporary experience. Ultimately, what is laid bare is the struggle of the wounded and their healers that expresses itself both in art as in life itself.
