“This show has been really difficult to make. I don’t want to make a big deal or anything… But he’s been really difficult.”
Following the success of Eurohouse, Bert & Nasi return with Palmyra, an exploration of revenge, the politics of destruction and what we consider to be barbarian. Palmyra invites people to step back from the news, looking at what lies beneath—and beyond—civilization.
An essential piece of political drama mixing fact and fiction, Palmyra is being developed with support from Croquis_BCN (Barcelona), Bristol Ferment, MAYK, Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Ovalhouse and HOME.

The company will be in conversation alongside Dr Gemma Sou (University of Manchester, Director MSc International Disaster Management/Humanitarian Video Games) and Matthew Vincent (Creator of Rekrei).
