Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas: ONE

Date:Wed 06 Nov
Time:7.30pm
Venue:J2
Price:Pay What You Feel

ONE is the third and final part of a trilogy of work exploring power dynamics and political themes on a micro, human level.

It’s about polarisation, it’s about the left and the right. It’s also about two people who need to fix an awful, toxic relationship.

ONE is a painful conversation, either late at night or the early morning, in which neither side can bring themselves to just leave the room.

Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas’s work is stripped back to say the least: the shows shouldn’t be interesting, but the way they play with humour, brutality, and their ability to turn the mood of a room on a sixpence has resonated with audiences across the world.

They are, to my mind, one of the most exciting prospects in British theatre.Matt Trueman, Whatsonstage.

★★★★ startlingly effective: jagged, knockabout fun with a decidedly sharp edge.The Times (on PALMYRA)

“A fine example of theatre presenting a mystery that cannot be solved… The mystery of it all is just too intriguing.”
The Greater Manchester Reviewer

“Lesca and Voutsas are masters of their art… Their sense of comic timing, pathos and charm are reminiscent of another age – and double acts like Laurel and Hardy, yet their work is sharply focused on modern issues.”
Live Art Alive

“This dynamic duo are fantastic to watch… In a world where we are obsessed with creating, deliberating and opining, One allows its audiences to read between the lines and reflect on their own mental health, irritating instincts and political agenda.”
Reviewer Number 9 (Manchester)
