This Is Not For You is an epic outdoor performance paying moving tribute to Britain’s wounded war veterans, men and women whose contributions to history often go unnoticed. The piece is directed by Jenny Sealey, written by Mike Kenny and performed by Blesma, The Limbless Veterans, professional performers and local community choirs.
This Is Not For You, part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, is a story of veterans’ fight for respect and remembrance, told with heft. beauty and wry humour, both on the ground and off it, with audio description and sign language as integral parts of the production. Graeae, with the National Centre for Circus Arts, has trained 25 disabled veterans in performance especially for the piece.
This summer at Greenwich+Docklands International Festival & Stockton International Riverside Festival.
