Location: Quick Center for the Arts
The Quick invites to you engage with internationally acclaimed theatre work Campo Minado / MINEFIELD for a week of programs noted below. In Lola Arias’ MINEFIELD, six Falklands/Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they travel back to 1984 to share memories, films, songs, and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it.

Campo Minado / MINEFIELD
Saturday, January 26 at 8 p.m.
Free tickets for Faculty and Staff available by contacting the box office. Send a class list to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve free tickets for students.
Rich with live-action projections, and told in both Spanish and English, the theatre piece is staged on a film-set-turned-time-machine, where those who fought are teleported into the past to reconstruct their memories of the war and aftermath. Soldier, veteran, human – these men have stories to share as they take us from the horrors of war to today’s uncertainties, with brutal honesty and startling humor.
