Based on first hand accounts of the “Kendal pals” of North West England who fought at the Somme, this piece of contemporary dance peers into the trauma created by war. 

It recreates not only the psychological fractures suffered by shell-shocked soldiers but also the difficult process of healing once battle is over.
