‘Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past’
George Orwell

Not Today’s Yesterday is an International collaboration between UK award-winning Bharatanatyam artist Seeta Patel and Australian choreographer Lina Limosani. This multi-award winning show blends techniques from Bharatanatyam, contemporary dance and theatre to create a poetic narrative that has the beauty and disquiet of a Grimm’s fairytale. It is a one-woman show which subversively co-opts whitewashing against itself.

Once upon a time… in a faraway land… it happened… did not happen… could have happened.

PALMYRA is an exploration of revenge and what we consider to be barbaric.

From Bert and Nasi, the violent clowning duo behind the critically acclaimed dark comedy about the EU (EUROHOUSE), PALMYRA invites you to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath – and beyond – civilisation.

Following an extended, unanimously-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe and tour of Spain with BEST OF BE 2017, Bert & Nasi’s Total Theatre Award-winning, ‘weird, wonderful and strangely stressful’ PALMYRA (★★★★ The Stage) returns.

There’s a shadow coming, across the sea. Long and terrifying. The vultures are circling, the wolves are howling… how can we weather this storm?

The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide’s swept out, and it’s taken our hope with it. There’s less in our pockets and more to be spent. The rich have got richer, the middle’s squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards.

With the true value of money and the human cost of greed firmly in their sights, Proto-type Theater tell the story of how a nation raised their voices in protest and railed against the currents.

Tickets on sale from Monday 3rd September
