About this show

Fallujah, Vieques, Mindanao, Okinawa, Port-Au-Prince - The US currently has troops in roughly 70% of the world's countries - not including the increasing use of sub-contractors and unclassified military operations. THAW (Theaters Against War) responds to the escalation of violence, human rights abuses and the use of torture in Iraq with May's gathering of artistic forces to look at both the long, sordid history of U.S. military occupation, as well as to the growing tide of protest worldwide. From Wounded Knee to Abu Ghraib - with notable US clandestine sponsorships of puppet regimes and/or supplying of money and arms to wreak turmoil in East Timor, Chile, Palestine, Equador, just to name a few countries - the export of US-style democracy historically arrives through the use of devastating force.
