“Unforgettably potent. … Past and present intersect with extraordinary power and eloquence in this deeply affecting show.” —The Independent
From the horrors of the battlefield to today’s global uncertainties, Minefield unveils its truths through brutal honesty, compassion, and startling humor. This enthralling piece of documentary theater is presented by Buenos Aires–based writer, director, visual artist, and actor Lola Arias, who returns to the Walker (The Year I was Born, Out There 2014) with a masterpiece that sold out multiple runs at London’s Royal Court Theatre and has toured globally to wide acclaim. Using a range of experimental techniques, six Argentine and British veterans from both sides of the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas War explore the treacherous minefield of their memories—storytelling that conveys a sense of humanity onstage in a rare and moving way.
Note: Strobe lighting effects and flashing lights are in use in this performance.
