Theatre of War – Creating Rights: Tread Lightly for You Tread on My Realities

Here’s a link to a piece I wrote with Dr Andrea Breslin for ‘Creating Rights.’

A Theatre of War – Setting the Stage for a Critical Reflection on human Rights Violations in Armed Conflict.

Inspired by the recent Theatre of War Symposium at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre, the piece explores the theatre as a space to critically reflect on human rights violations in armed conflict.
