What does it mean to say we are at war? What is the mass media’s role and function in response to war, and what is ours? Can we, as “non-combatants”, change the course of war? The visceral and thought-provoking theatrical work Measure Back seeks a path between the citizen-as-spectator and the citizen-as-participant. Set in an immersive theatrical environment to examine scenes of conflict ranging from Homer’s The Iliad to today’s headlines, Measure Back uses audience participation and black humor to probe how war is constructed and performed – from conception through consensus to action.
