Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas / Palmyra

A two man show on revenge, the politics of destruction and what we consider to be barbarian, inspired by the destruction of cultural sites in the city of Palmyra, Syria. With humour in a serious matter, the artist duo Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas invites you to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath - and beyond - civilisation.

Winner of the Stockholm Fringe Festival Grand Prix 2017.
"weird, wonderful and strangely stressful" (★★★★ The Stage).

The ancient city of Palmyra was one of the best preserved in the world. Tourists flocked to visit the iconic temples of Bel and Baalshamin as well as the Arch of Triumph. Palmyra has changed hands throughout history, from the Roman Empire in the first century to the recent ISIS occupation.
