A former British soldier, Palestinian actor and a Yemeni artist come together 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.

Join acclaimed site-specific theatre company Common Wealth as they transform Byker Community Centre into a world charged with lasers, techno and robotic installation, asking audiences to take a close look at the UK defence industry and the role we play, as a nation and as individuals, in wars that are seemingly far away.

I Have Met the Enemy is part techno party, part investigation and above all else, a call to action. Tickets only £2 for Byker residents: https://www.northernstage.co.uk/event/i-have-met-the-enemy-and-the-enemy-is-us


A Common Wealth and Northern Stage co-production, in association with Chapter and Southbank Centre.
Funded by Arts Council England, Bradford Council, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Blue Stone Consortium and Well Newcastle Gateshead
