What is a veteran? Survivor? Hero? Mad Man?
After stunning audiences in Brighton Festival 2016, Lola Arias' Gant The Down Black Vest Airlight Minefieldreturns to Brighton. Six Falklands/Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they share memories, films, songs and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it.
