Theater of War......
I have been reading about the "Theater of War". It has been created by a man named Bryan Doerries. He is the translator of ancient Greek plays such as Ajax written by Sophocles. Sophocles was a general in the wars of Greece, 2500 years ago. It is believed that he wrote these plays to help the warriors to heal.
Doerries translates these plays in a sparse manner to help people to fill in the areas that need to be filled in. He presents these plays to veterans, their wives, and families. He helps to create a dialog, where there was none before. He also has presented these plays to a variety of other people that have seen the trauma of life. His plays are raw. They are put on by good actors with a limited budget. No costumes or frills are included in play. And yet these words have a very healing effect with the people that attend.
A quote from Doerries goes, "Make them wish that they'd never come". He puts such passion into the play that, "the intent of the evening is to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted". People walk away feeling the truth of the suffering that they have seen.
I did not think that I could write about this man and his plays that he performs. This comes very close to home. I was raised in the slaughter house of the war. I have worked to understand this horror that we keep having on this planet. I still do not understand. But the dialog is happening, I have wanted to be part of the healing process. That is why I continue doing LENS neurofeedback to help to heal the wounds of so many.
