Each war deepens social divisions, yet each has the potential to lead to a breakthrough in human and societal renewal. Based on real-life experiences with war-affected populations and combatants, and grounded in academic and professional expertise in global peace and security, this multi-media performance combines theatre, dance, poetry, music, visual art and dialogue with the audience to bring to life the volatile dynamics of war and the potent potential for peace.  

Dr Rama Mani (Founder, Theatre of Transformation; Faculty member, Geneva Academy; Senior Research Associate, Centre for International Studies, University of Oxford)  Dr Annette Idler (Director of Studies, Changing Character of War Programme, University of Oxford, and Research Associate, Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding, the Graduate Institute, Geneva) With participation of Valerio Benevento (dance) and art work by Tanisha Bhana.

This event is a joint project of the University of Oxford (CCW, CIS and OxPeace) and the Graduate Institute, Geneva. It forms part of the OxPeace Annual Conference and is open to the public. Further information:
