I Have Met The Enemy (and The Enemy is Us)

  • Byker Community Centre 153 Headlam Street Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE6 United Kingdom (map)

What if we said that Britain (this tiny island) is the biggest arms dealer in the world?

A former British soldier and a Palestinian citizen meet in an intimate and powerful exchange, in a joint attempt to understand the UK arms trade and its impact around the world.

Through differing perspectives and a shared love of techno, I Have Met the Enemy (and the enemy is us) takes us on a personal and political journey into the darkest corners of what makes Britain tick.

Acclaimed site-specific theatre company Common Wealth will transform Byker Community Centre into worlds for audiences to explore - worlds charged with light, sound and robotics.

I Have Met the Enemy is part techno party, part investigation and above all else, a call to action.

A Common Wealth and Northern Stage co-production, in association with Chapter and Southbank Centre.
