I HAVE MET THE ENEMY (and the enemy is us)


I HAVE MET THE ENEMY (and the enemy is us)

What if we said that Britain (this tiny island) is the second 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.

Common Wealth will transform community spaces 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.
