Elia Arce’s, The Fifth Commandment, explores the personal ethics and spiritual beliefs surrounding the act of killing within the framework of the US military. How would human consciousness need to evolve in order for war to cease? Of particular interest to her, is the disparity between a person’s actions and a person’s spiritual and moral beliefs. For the project, Arce conducted a series of interviews with individuals from the military community in the Bay Area, San Antonio and Houston.
Of Central American origin, Elia Arce uses film/video, theater, dance, and installation to explore complex social and political themes. This performance installation in progress, crafted from interviews with active military personnel returning from Iraq, veterans of other wars and military family members, will explore the personal ethics and beliefs surrounding the crime of crimes. Oakland’s satirical guerilla performance crew, HeadRush, will open.
