Bert and Nasi: The End
The End is a poignant and funny account of the ongoing climate catastrophe. In this new show, 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 partnership. Their dance is a reminder and a celebration of our own mortality, and that of everything around us.
“Both insistently silly and unreservedly heart-rending” Guardian ****
Bert & Nasi’s stripped back, award-winning style sits somewhere between theatre, dance and live art-but if you held them against a wall, they would probably say it’s theatre. Their funny, playful,sometimes brutal performances are direct and emotional responses to the world we’re living in right now.
