Meanwhile outside our echo chamber, a global crisis rages. How far can your compassion reach?

Now I Can Speak.

‘I’m bringing everything I ever knew – everything good, strong, kind and powerful. I bring it all with me into every situation. […] So I will take the Scandinavian story of the Little Princess, I will take the story of Heidi in the Alpine Mountains, I will take the story of O-Lan in Pearl S. Buck’s book The Good Earth, I will take them all. I take them, and I know them, and I am them. So when I walk into a room, people know that somebody has come in – they just don’t know it’s 2,000 people!’
Maya Angelou during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, December 2000.

Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas: One
Tickets: £12/£10 concessions
Click Here to book online.

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

Following Eurohouse and the Total Theatre Award-winning Palmyra, Bert and Nasi return to AMATA with ONE. 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.
