“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.”
Hull Truck Theatre welcomes the critically acclaimed Eurohouse by Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas, co-produced by FellSwoop Theatre.
Two performers – one Greek, one French – dance and shout, cry and sing, agree and disagree, about life in the Eurohouse. It’s a darkly comic look at the European Union’s founding ideals, and what might have got lost along the way.
Bertrand and Nasi explore the relationship between EU member states through their friendship – testing each other, supporting each other, and asserting their power over one another. They also look at how cooperation can break down over time.
Made in transit between Greece and the UK, Eurohouse was developed with the help and support of Bios Athens, Bristol Old Vic Ferment, MAYK Theatre, Wardrobe Theatre, Camden People’s Theatre and Incoming Festival.
Bertrand is predominantly a Theatre Director, having directed FellSwoop Theatre’s Ghost Opera, To Know How You Stand and Five Days in March. He was also Assistant Director on Cheek by Jowl’s acclaimed productions of Ubu Roi and ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore. Nasi is the co-founder of Antler Theatre, where he is a writer, a performer and musician.
Eurohouse was nominated for the Total Theatre Award for Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form.
