Parables of War @ National Gallery of Art

ParablesUsing MacArthur Genius Award–winner Liz Lerman’s performance piece Healing Wars as a point of departure, Parables of War explores the experience of three performers, all of whom are real-life victims of war: actor Bill Pullman, dancer Keith Thompson, and ex-Marine Josh Bleill. Going beyond the performance, Parables explores the nexus between art and artist, representation and personal narrative, and historical truths versus contemporary experience.
