Co-presented by MAYK and Arnolfini.
By Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas, in collaboration with Laura Dannequin.
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.
“As doomsday draws near, this impossibly beautiful duet sees ramshackle dance duo Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas, known as Bert and Nasi, imagine a future without each other. As soon as it’s over, I want to go back to the start.”
Commissioned by The Place and Warwick Arts Centre, Developed with support from Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Bert & Nasi are produced by Farnham Maltings and are Associate Artists of MAYK.
