The Beanfield

The BeanfieldT0420852537
It's been 30 years since the Battle of the Beanfield - a brutal crackdown on the annual Stonehenge Free Festival. Called away from policing the miners' strike, officers enforced an injunction around the ancient stones with bloody violence and mass arrests. Armed with a camera, a map and home-made riot gear, Breach set out mark the anniversary with a historical re-enactment. Onstage, the same performers try to capture the 2015 Stonehenge summer solstice: there's hot dog stands, Hare Krishnas and MDMA-fuelled raving, as a group of young people try to connect - but it all feels a bit fake. Blending documentary footage with new writing, Breach presents a multimedia show about state violence and national heritage, in "a new kind of fusion theatre" (Matt Trueman).
