The arts are increasingly used to promote peacebuilding, transitional justice, and reconciliation in post-war environments. Theatre has attracted most of the attention while dance has been relatively neglected. This talk looks closely at a project that combined inclusive dance and rights-awareness in post-war Sri Lanka, and its impacts on people with conflict-related disabilities. The talk also draws larger lessons about the role of the performing arts in peacebuilding.
