Using MacArthur ‘Genius’ Award-winning choreographer Liz Lerman’s theatrical performance piece Healing Wars 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 representation and personal narrative, and between historical truth and contemporary experience. Ultimately, what is laid bare is the struggle of the wounded and of their healers that expresses itself both in art and in life itself.
