Event location: The Royal Court Theatre. Ongoing event.
In her trademark political and playful style, Lola Arias brings together British and Argentinian veterans of the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas war to share their first-hand experience of the conflict and life since.
This collaboratively created new work merges theatre and film to blur the lines between truth and fiction, on a stage 8,000 miles from their remembered battlefield.
"When I got back from the war I was a stone. I couldn't feel anything. " Argentinian veteran
"The islands looked very beautiful, much like Scotland with barren land and mountains. But that was just a blurred image through my binoculars." British veteran
