Measure Back is a theatre-event by Christopher McElroen and T. Ryder Smith. It is an attempt to navigate a path between the citizen as spectator and the citizen as participant. It is a theatrical event about war, and is devised nightly via interaction with our audience. The relation of the audience to the performers and to “the event” parallels our collective status as citizens trying to negotiate our responses to the wars waged in our names.
