The Warriors: A Love Story confronts
the disturbing beauty and profound devastation of war. Searching through his grandmother's trunk after her death, Eliot is transported into the past by physical mementos that reveal a powerful family legacy, passed down by Ursula, a German dancer and survivor of the Allied bombing of Dresden, and Glenn, an American philosopher and veteran. An ensemble of dancers, interactive projections, and live music conjure a universe out of the trunk.
