About the show and Director:
Healing Wars explores the experiences of the healers tasked with treating the physical and psychic wounds of battle. Joined by Bill Pullman '80 (Independence Day), an ensemble of dancers represent medics and soldiers from the Civil War to today. Called “the source of an epochal revolution in the scope and purposes of dance art,”(Washington Post) Liz Lerman’s work has been performed throughout the U.S. and abroad. After thirty-four years as founding artistic director of Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, Lerman presents her singular aesthetic to audiences in this exciting world premiere about how we experience and recover from war.
