Today was the first group performance of Widows: Lines in the Sand. Core Project in conjunction with Bodyrewired and Jaber Alturfee performed and documented on the 31st Beach, covering a large portion of the beach with lines memorializing the repetitive labor of widows in Iraq. We drew over ten thousand lines collectively while imagining (or in Jabur's case remembering the faces) of widows in desperate need of aid, stability or hope. Many people stopped to ask us why and what we were doing, and we received a variety of responses from curious to supportive. I have yet to encounter an angry response.
