The Dynamics of War & Peace - Drama, Poetry, Music and Dance

With the University of Oxford

Each war deepens social divisions, yet each has the potential to lead to a breakthrough in human and societal renewal. Based on real-life experiences with war-affected populations and combatants, and grounded in academic and professional expertise in global peace and security, this special multi-media performance combines theatre, dance, poetry, music and visual art to bring to life the volatile dynamics of war and the potent potential for peace.
