How do soldiers returning from the battlefield recover from their wounds? How do doctors and nurses heal the injuries these soldiers suffer, seen and unseen? Trailblazing choreographer Liz Lerman returns to Peak Performances with Healing Wars, a profoundly relevant and deeply moving new work. Through spoken word, video, and dance, Healing Wars reaches across the centuries to connect the modern wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the American Civil War. The ensemble of performers is joined onstage by a young Navy veteran whose presence personalizes the tribute that this brilliant, deftly nuanced production pays to all soldiers and healers, past and present.
