Civilian Warrior Project

Civilian / Warrior weaves the classic play Woyzeck, Indian Kali myth and interviews and imagery from recent war veterans to create a unique narrative on soldiers and citizens in our modern day culture of war. This unique combination of live dance and projected image combines elements of documentary film, multi-screen video installation and movement in hybrid between theatrical work and gallery installation. In creating Civilian / Warrior, Rothlein worked with a team of consultants and contributors, including hip-hop legend Rennie Harris, Seattle-based choreographer Maureen Whiting, former Army Sergeant John McCary, classical Indian dancer Viji Rao, MIRO co-director Amanda Miller and the Miro dancers.
