IT DON’T WORRY ME is a collaboration between the Catalan Company ATRESBANDES & the duo Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas. Together they interrogate the tension between art and political correctness.
We watch a supposedly ‘empty space’ which is analysed by two commentators in the room with us.
But as the commentators become the commented on, theories and visual associations start to dominate everything, and the show spirals out of control, out of meaning, and out of context. All the while, three audience members, dressed in the style of Robert Altman’s 1975 film Nashville, thought they were coming to see a different show altogether. They each have confessions they would like to make.
ATRESBANDES is a theatre company that explores new ways to approach contemporary performance. They have previously presented All In (2017) & Locus Amoenus (2014) at Warwick Arts Centre.
Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas are the creators of a trilogy of work on contemporary questions, which have each previously been presented at Warwick Arts Centre: Eurohouse (2016), Palmyra (2017) and One (2019). They will be back in the Autumn with their new piece The End.
