I Have Met the Enemy (and the Enemy is Us)
Amnesty International Freedom of Expression award-winning company Common Wealth takes on the UK arms trade as the topic under scrutiny in its latest site-specific production. Delivered by a former British soldier, a Palestinian citizen and a Yemeni artist, I Have Met the Enemy (and the enemy is us) examines the personal perspectives of two people with lived experience of war, against the backdrop of global politics; asking audiences to take a close look at the UK defence industry and the role we play, as both a nation and as individuals, in wars that are seemingly far away.
