The Ghosts of Hiroshima

by Deborah Lubar with Diane Wickes Roose, Directed by Jackie Pualani Johnson

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, November 17, 18 & 19 at 7:30pm and Sunday, November 20, 2016 at 2:00pm.

The words of survivors of the bombing of Hiroshima are framed against the hard facts about nuclear weapons in this stirring theatrical consideration of the effects of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, killing 146,000 people.

Images, words, science and poetry interweave through the repercussions of the bombing, allowing all to understand the scale and impact of nuclear weaponry. The theatrical conventions of movement, dance, and masks allow the ideas to be considered in a startling, revealing manner.

The Performing Arts Department presents this landmark offering as an ode to the times and temperaments found in today's global landscape. At the heart of the production is the consideration of the human costs of war.
