ABOUT THE SHOW
The Body of a Woman as a Battlefield in the Bosnian War is a work of fiction based on real life events.
While informed by the facts occurred in the Bosnian War (1992 – 1995) — in which rape was used as a form of military strategy aimed at demoralizing and humiliating the adversary — the show explores questions of belonging and loss of identity in this context of inter-ethnic war. To prevent conflict from happening here, one has to consider the universal causes for it, and understand what needs to change.
The play tells the story of an American psychologist, Kate, who is sent to Bosnia to help a team digging up mass graves, and as a consequence is impaired by a variation of PTSD. She is cared for in a NATO medical facility where she meets Dorra, a victim of gang war rape. The relationship dynamic takes unexpected turns as the two women deal with the aftermath of war.
This is Single Line Theatre‘s inaugural production.
The play was performed at The Cultch Theatre (1895 Venables St., Vancouver) in September, 2014, as part of the Vancouver Fringe Dramatic Works Series.
