Bryan Doerries, Theater of War Productions

Description

Bryan Doerries's lecture: 'Theater of War: What Ancient Greek Tragedies Can Teach Us Today" describes his work bringing Greek tragedies to war-weary U.S. Marines, to neighborhoods ravaged by gun violence and crime, and to cities that have been visited by civil unrest after police violence, such as Ferguson, Missouri. By describing his work and the reactions of audience members across the world, Doerries will argue that suffering and healing are part of a timeless process in which dialogue and empathy are inextricably linked.
