Based on excerpts from the creation process of MacArthur “Genius” Award-winning choreographer Liz Lerman’s theatrical dance piece, “Healing Wars”, Parables of War explores the intersection of art with artist and the ways in which art can help bind the wounds of war — both for the soldiers and for those they left behind.  Parables of War witnesses the journey of three men who are in one way or another casualties of war: actor Bill Pullman; dancer Keith Thompson; and former Marine Josh Bleill. Transcending performance, ‘Parables’ explores the intricate nexus that exists between art and artist, between presentation and personal narrative, 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.
