Decorations are all that is left after a theatre production. The area where an armed conflict takes place is commonly referred to as the “theatre of war”. Theatre is a form of art, a scenic representation of dramatic works performed by actors before an audience. Today this definition is an apt description of war per se. For this is the most popular and influential subject in the contemporary media with the overriding focus on looking for dramatic images. These images have become routine in culture where the shock value is the leading driver of consumption, and in other words, a way to get rich. Regular news reports from flashpoints, mixed with popular music videos, films with advertising, deform and distort the spectator’s view on the truth and suffering of other people, alienate the audience from incidents, and act as an idiosyncratic barrier between the world and chaos.
