Notes on He Woke Up In A Strange Place Called Home And Although Looking For Bed He Kept Finding Death Instead
Tales of the displaced life of a soldier returning from war have been told for centuries – maybe as long as people have had others do their killing. The displacement of Homer’s Odysseus and Büchner’s Woyzeck are two. Rather than retell these stories, I want to create an experience in which our world meets these imaginary worlds head on. Our history does not disappear when we close the door behind us. The past is part of the landscape; it shapes the space in which we now live. The prison at Abu Ghraib recently got a new coat of paint and some flowers.
