translated from Spanish: To see this April 2: «Minefield,» poignant work on the Falklands War

Culture is what prevails in time, which endures to refresh memory, to live, to know or relive multiple real events, some of those that were part of our history and that of the country, important to remember and see where we want to go.

This April 2, on the initiative of the Ministry of Culture of the Nation, you can watch via streaming the poignant staging of Lola Arias, «Campo minado». The work is not only a time trip but has the valuable participation of former Falklands War fighters (1982), Argentine and English soldiers. The work is a project of the writer with co-production of UNSAM, the LIFT Festival and Royal Court Theatre, Brighton, Theaterformen, Le Quai Angers, Kunstlerhaus Mousonturm, hTh CDN Montpellier and Athens and Epidaurus Festival. Co-produced by LIFT and supported by The British Council Argentina. It will be available from Thursday 2 April at 20 am, until April 4.

Thirty four years after the war, the work explores in the minds of the combatants, who through their testimonies will try to reconstruct their experiences, history. What’s a veteran, a survivor, a hero, a madman? is the fundamental premise that runs through the work. Among the characters involved in the staging are: Lou Armour, today a teacher of children with different abilities; Rubén Otero who has a tribute band to the Beatles; David Jackson is a therapist who listens to veterans and receives them in his office; Gabriel Sagastume, that soldier who never wanted to shoot today is a criminal lawyer; Sukrim Rai is a security guard; and Marcelo Vallejo, currently triathlon champion.
