Theater of War

October 28, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Taking into account Alberto Burri’s experience as a prisoner of war, the Guggenheim hosts Outside the Wire as they present an iteration of their innovative public health project, Theater of War. Esteemed actors Zach Grenier, Amy Ryan, and John Turturro perform dramatic readings of selections from Sophocles’s Philoctetes and Algerian Diary by Vittorio Sereni, a major Italian poet who was also a prisoner of war during World War II. The readings will be followed by a panel discussion and town hall–style forum addressing the various and lasting impacts of war on the human psyche. Cast subject to change. Free with RSVP.
