The Veterans Project - White Swan Theatre

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance

Abstract

This output is one part of a practice research portfolio consisting of 12 performances, two journal articles, and two unpublished scripts. The Veterans Project is a performance of curated oral histories shared by military veterans with the communities in which they live.

This performance featured five male veterans, two of whom had served in the Royal Air Force and three who served in the Royal Army. Two of the veterans onstage were chaplains in the Middle East and the Falklands, two had been medics in Bosnia-Kosovo, and one was in the special forces in Northern Ireland; the discussion centred on questions of service, witnessing the horrors of war and its aftermath in civilian engagement, and differences among the branches in terms of training and culture.
