GLOD: Political Theatre as a Civil Right returns Monday 03 August 2020 with Common Wealth's I Have Met the Enemy (and the enemy is us).
Joining the conversation will be the performers of the show; Mo’min Swaitat, Alexander Eley and Shatha Altowai – a Palestinian actor, former British soldier and a Yemeni artist who connect in a joint attempt to understand the UK arms trade and its impact around the world.
This session will feature short videos and primarily be a conversation with the team.
With lasers, techno and robotic installation to represent the 72 Eurofighter Jets sold by the UK to Saudi Arabia to be used in Yemen, I Have Met The Enemy asks audiences to take a close look at the UK defence industry and the role we play, as a nation and as individuals, in conflict and occupation around the world. I Have Met the Enemy is part techno party, part investigation and above all else a call to action. A Common Wealth and Northern Stage co-production, in association with Comra Films, Chapter and Southbank Centre.
This session will feature video from the piece as well as a conversation and Q&A with the directors.
All performances and discussions are free, please register your interest for the event here.
