The repertoire encompasses the great dramatic works of world literature and contemporary plays from internationally renowned writers. Alongside directors from Berlin such as Thomas Ostermeier, Michael Thalheimer, Armin Petras, Patrick Wengenroth, Falk Richter and Marius von Mayenburg the theatre frequently offers a platform in Berlin to notable directors from abroad.

<p>In her trademark political and playful style, Lola Arias brings together British and Argentinian veterans of the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas war to share their first-hand experience of the conflict and life since.</p> <p>This collaboratively created new work merges theatre and film to blur the lines between truth and fiction, on a stage 8,000 miles from their remembered battlefield.</p> <p><em>“When I got back from the war I was a stone. I couldn&#8217;t feel anything. ” Argentinian veteran</em></p> <p><em>“The islands looked very beautiful, much like Scotland with barren land and mountains. But that was just a blurred image through my binoculars.” British veteran</em></p> <p><strong>Lola Arias</strong> is a writer, director, actress and songwriter and a leading voice in Argentinean theatre. Her productions play with the overlap between reality and fiction and have seen her work with actors, non actors, musicians, dancers, children, babies, and animals. Lola has a long term relationship with <span class="caps">LIFT</span>, most recently with her acclaimed <em>The Year I Was Born</em> (Southbank Centre, 2014).</p> <p>In English and Spanish with English surtitles.</p> <p><strong>Alongside <em>Minefield</em> we are also presenting</strong> <a href="http://www.royalcourttheatre.com/whats-on/open-for-everything" target="_blank"">Open For Everything</a> <strong>and</strong> <a href="http://www.royalcourttheatre.com/season/on-the-move-lift-2016" target="_blank"">On the Move</a> <strong>as part of <span class="caps">LIFT</span> 2016.</strong></p> <p>A <span class="caps">LIFT</span> co-commission with Royal Court Theatre, Brighton Festival, Le Quai Angers and Künstlerhaus Mousonturm.<br /> Produced by <span class="caps">LIFT</span>.<br /> A House on Fire project, supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union.</p> <p><img src="/files/images/applicationfiles/1134.7734.MINEFIELD_logos350/300x267.bywidth.jpg" alt="" /></p> ]]>
