                  In 1999, choreographer Yoshiko Chuma went to Sarajevo with The 
                  School of Hard Knocks, the collective of modern dance 
                  choreographers and artists she directs. While there, they 
                  performed "Footprints of War" at the Sarajevo International 
                  Theater Festival. That was the easy part. Getting the set from 
                  Sarajevo to New York for performances scheduled at the Joyce 
                  was a two-and-a-half month ordeal of emails and 
                  miscommunications that is the subject of her newest piece, 
                  "Pi=3.14: Hiroshima-New York-Belgrade-New York-Sarajevo-New 
                  Chuma, who says the title represents "endless, continuous 
                  circles of life and war," has put together spoken word and 
                  choreography into this work that pulls together themes of war, 
                  displacement and Chuma's own childhood in postwar Japan. The 
                  performers each have experiences with war, such as Tea Alagic, 
                  who is from Mostar, a city in Bosnia and Herzergovina; Ivan 
                  Talijancic, a Croatian-born actor, Jim DiBiasio, an American 
                  actor who has experienced three wars, and Wazma Osman, an 
                  Afghan woman who walked over the Pakistani border to freedom 
                  in 1980. -- Laura Shin
