How do we prioritize simplicity when talking about very complex matters? How do you inject feeling into facts? In this practical workshop based on their own practice and creative methodology, Bert and Nasi explore ideas around disagreement, frustration, hatred, and reconciliation – particularly as these relate to contemporary society – using the stage as a space for artistic and political negotiation. 

There will be some discussions, some improvisation and some loud music (probably ABBA). Participants will develop an understanding of how to make a political situation live in a room between 2 or 3 people, and how to make use of metaphors in order to make the situation you are exploring more understandable.

Workshop leaders are Total Theatre Award (UK) winners Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas, creators and performers of EUROHOUSE and PALMYRA, who have developed a strong reputation in the UK for making original political theatre. For more about their work, visit the artists’ website.
