Iraqi Performance Art: "Poets' Militia" Relives Victims' Plight While Reciting Anti-ISIS Poetry

Iraqi poets have taken the saying that art imitates reality to a whole new level: the "Poets' Militia" travels from one place to another, reciting poetry from within a prisoners' cage, an ambulance, or a body bag. Wearing orange jumpsuits, the members of the "militia" aim to expose "the hideousness [of ISIS practices] through poignant texts of theatrical poetry." This report on the "Poets' Militia" aired on Mayadeen TV on November 24.
