Why We Fight

Who is ready to fight for something? Actually fight, by risking one’s own life and with a weapon in one’s hand? Eric Arnal-Burtschy, a reserve officer in the First Division Scorpion of the French Army and at the same time a dancer, performer and visual artist, has done it. His two professions make for a somewhat unusual combination. In Why we fight – titled after a US propaganda film series from the time of the Second World War – Arnal-Burtschy provides insights into the ambivalences of serving in the military. Having completed several assignments in Africa, he also deals with colonial discourse: for instance, by drawing connections between a jihadist’s diary he found after a battle and his own biography. This light-footed monologue is full of drive, with the performer talking about a brutal reality.
