“Healing Wars,” a new work by Liz Lerman with media design by Kate Freer, sound by Darron West, and featuring actor Bill Pullman with a professional ensemble, will examine our Civil War and the wars in Iraq/Afghanistan through the eyes of the healers involved. With a multi-site development process spanning the archives of Harvard, to head-trauma research labs, to Gettysburg, Liz is using partners in medicine, academia, and veterans’ communities to further her methods. Arena Stage will premiere this dance work as part of its subscription series.
