“It’s What We Do” was born [when] former IDF soldier Avner Gvaryahu… was speaking about the [Israeli] organization Breaking the Silence and its new book, Our Harsh Logic. … I was inspired by his courage in speaking out about the realities of the Israeli occupation… The play is drawn directly from the testimonies: the soldiers’ reflections are verbatim; the enacted stories are ones they tell…[T]hree composite soldiers represent varying responses to the harsh occupation policies they enforce: moral indignation, power highs, inner conflict…. [T]hey are interviewed by The Voice in the audience, who encourages them to confront what they have done. [Recounting] their stories, they face their roles as perpetrators of injustice. We in the audience are challenged just as they are: What are we doing with our awareness of this injustice?
