IT DONT WORRY ME is a collaboration between ATRESBANDES and the duo Bertrand Lesca & Nasi Voutsas. Together they interrogate the tension between art and political correctness. We watch a supposedly ‘empty space’ which is analysed by two commentators in the room with us. But as the commentators become the commented on, theories and visual associations start to dominate everything, and the show spirals out of control, out of meaning, and out of context. All the while three audience members dressed in the style of Robert Altman’s 1975 film Nashville, thought they were coming to see a different show altogether. They each have confessions they would like to make.
