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. Lola Arias is a writer, director, actress and songwriter and a leading voice in Argentinean theatre. Her productions play with the overlap between reality and fiction and have seen her work with actors, non actors, musicians, dancers, children, babies, and animals. Lola has a long term relationship with LIFT, most recently with her acclaimed The Year I Was Born (Southbank Centre, 2014).
Orchestrated by Tokyo-based artist and pop-idol Toco Nikaido, this is Japanese subculture conveyed in all its multi-coloured, cacophonous, frenetic glory. Prepare to be equipped with a rain poncho and earplugs as twenty-five performers swarm the stage at breakneck speed, armed with an abundance of disposable props and subcultural references. In a frenzied homage to otagei, (ritualised dancing and chanting by groups of fans) this riotous company hurtle towards a festival-like finale that invites everyone to take part.
Part of the London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT).
