This is an online stream of a live performance taking place on the HOME stage.
Commissioned by The Place and Warwick Arts Centre
In this new piece, Bert and Nasi explore friendship and human connection in a future without one another. The show is a funny, poignant and sad account of the ongoing climate crisis.
Above the stage and projected onto a screen, two parallel narratives run alongside each other: the end of the Earth and the end of their collaboration. Their dance is a reminder and a celebration of our own mortality, and that of everything around us.
Bert & Nasi are produced by Farnham Maltings.
About Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutas
Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas are two performance makers that have been working together since 2015.
Creating work in an age of austerity and about austerity their work is stripped right back and sits somewhere between live art and theatre, but if you held them against a wall they would probably say it’s theatre.
Together they first created the trilogy EUROHOUSE, PALMYRA and ONE which explored power dynamics and political themes on a micro, human level, and complex political and social questions – Greece’s relationship with the EU; the Syrian crisis; the rise of the ultra right – in an accessible, immediate form. Using humour and the dynamics of their onstage relationship, Bert and Nasi undercut and explore the darker aspects of contemporary subjects in work that questions both their own – and the audience’s – role as ‘active’ spectators in global conflicts.
Recent projects include IT DON’T WORRY ME, a collaboration with the Spanish Catalan company Atresbandes to make a piece exploring political correctness across cultures which was co-commissioned by HOME, Manchester.
