‘Let’s not overthink this…’

Stripped down to their pants and socks, but deadly serious, two performers interrogate the tension between art and political correctness.

Meanwhile, three audience members have turned up dressed in the style of Robert Altman’s 1975 film Nashville, apparently expecting a different show altogether…

Welcome to a gloriously silly world where everything has spiralled out of control and out of context – but the stakes have never been higher.

Furiously original and confoundingly funny, IT DON’T WORRY ME is a show like no other: somewhere between theatre, performance art and an hallucinogenic experience. Created by award-winning UK performance duo Bert & Nasi and trailblazing Catalan company ATRESBANDES.
