Are we all pretending this isn’t happening? He was the last guy we know to die. That soldier that turned up is probably going to someone else’s funeral and someone else’s after that. He’ll be deployed to turn up and pay his respects: make the widow feel good and then they won’t blame the state or the military or whatever.
Inspired by attitudes to war and militarization – from historical perspectives to current media representation – Tron Young Company asks questions of accepted roles for women and men in conflict, modern society’s use of propaganda, and what happens when war arrives on your doorstep.
This performance is part of the Chrysalis festival 2016.
