U.K. National Tour
SUITABLE FOR AGES: 14+
Following a critically-acclaimed run at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas’s Total Theatre-nominated EUROHOUSE, co-produced by FellSwoop Theatre, returns for a major national UK tour. “Bienvenue. Kalosórisma. Welcome. We are so happy to see you all here. Some of you we know rather well, some of you we don’t. But it doesn’t matter, you all look… stunning.”
Two performers – one Greek, one French – dance and shout, cry and sing, agree and disagree, about life in the Eurohouse. A darkly comic look at the EU’s founding ideals and what got lost along the way. Made in transit between Greece and the UK, EUROHOUSE was developed with the help and support of Bios Athens, Bristol Old Vic Ferment, MAYK, Wardrobe Theatre, CPT & Incoming Festival. Nominated for a Total Theatre Award for Innovation, Experimentation & Playing with Form.
“This wonderfully playful, intimate and ultimately moving show … constantly pits idealism against self-interest and pragmatism.” ★★★★ —The Guardian
“An exhilarating, intelligent fusion of theatre & lecture”
★★★★ – Broadway Baby
“Timely and refreshing”
★★★★ —The Reviews Hub
