Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a further lockdown in England, we will be contacting ticketholders affected by the new rules this week. Please bear with us as our phonelines will be busier than usual. We will also post updates on our social media channels and website. Thanks for your patience.

In this new piece, Bert and Nasi dance the end of their relationship, imagining what a future without each other might look like.
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. In the vein of their previous work, it is a poignant, sad and funny account of the ongoing ecological crisis.
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.
