Afghanistan: 2009.
Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training's complete, combat is a buzz. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t talk about, to anyone. And when he returns home, the trouble really begins.
A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families. With compassion and fearlessness, Vamos brings its trademark, wordless, full mask style to a story that needs to be told.
Praised by press and public alike for its consummate full mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, Vamos continues to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries, taking on challenging themes with poignancy, humour and humanity.
Suitable for aged 12 years up and accessible to hearing and d/Deaf audiences alike.
“An immensely affirmative joie de vivre... Catch it while you can” The Stage
“If you’ve never seen full mask theatre, there could be no better introduction than Vamos – their ability to explore profound themes with the lightest of touches is magical...the irresistible mix of humour and heartbreak makes them a must-see.’ Hereford Times
