The legend of the great Greek warrior Ajax inspired the playwright Sophocles and now provides the lens for choreographers John Farmanesh-Bocca, Jones Welsh, and the dancers of Jones' troupe Not Man Apart. The resulting dance drama, Ajax in Iraq, considers historical concepts of heroism with modern military issues of sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress.
