Theatre of War tells the story of how six veterans from the Malvinas/ Falklands War came together to make a film. Almost thirty-five years after the conflict, three British and three Argentine veterans spent months together discussing their war memories and then rehearsing their re-enactment. This film is a way of showing the whole social experiment of making an artistic project with one-time enemies of war: the auditions to find the protagonists, the first meetings and discussions with them, the theatrical re-enactments of their memories in different scenarios: a swimming pool, a construction site, a military regiment. All the scenes in the film are at the same time authentic and artificial. Sometimes it looks like it’s happening for the first time, sometimes it’s a highly rehearsed situation. Presented in conjunction with Campo Minado / MINEFIELD at the Quick Center on Saturday, January 26 at 8 P.M. Tickets available at http://quickcenter.fairfield.edu/18-19-season/theatre/campo-minado-minef... Concert Tickets $10 / Free For Veterans
