"We can no longer speak to those who fought in the trenches. But we can speak their language. In German, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian and Turkish with English narration and surtitles, the imaginative response to conflict will be explored in a unique multimedia performance. From the euphoria of 1914 to the disillusionment that soon set in, video art combined with spoken and written word will bring war poetry to life and reveal new European perspectives on WW1."

Tickets are £10 with £5 concessions for students and UCL alumni via the Bloomsbury Theatre website.

Programme and artistic direction by Flemish-Dutch cultural institution Ons Erfdeel, organised by the Centre for Low Countries Studies at UCL with support from:
