South West Dance Theatre presents a series of dance sketches to commemorate all those who lived and died for their country.

The fighting, the waiting, the fear, the worry, the loves and the losses – South West Dance Theatre presents a series of dance sketches of letters between those at the front and those left behind to commemorate the sacrifices of all those who lived and died in 1939-1945, as well as wars prior and since.

Using tap, ballet, acrodance and contemporary we move from a carefree world of singing and dancing, several years on from the close of the Great War – “the war to end all wars” – before war is then declared again, and watch the hopes and camaraderie of the first journeys off on campaign, the goodbyes, the waiting – on the Western and the Home Front – and the brutal finality for so many who lost their lives or loved ones.
