Furiously original and confoundingly funny, IT DON'T WORRY ME is a show like no other: somewhere between theatre, performance art and hallucinogenic experience. Don’t miss the London premiere of this acclaimed international collaboration, created by award-winning UK performance duo Bert & Nasi and trailblazing Catalan company ATRESBANDES.
IT DON'T WORRY ME is part of Spotlight on Catalan Culture in the UK and Ireland, a rich programme of events featuring literature, music, dance, cinema and more from March to June 2022 organised by the Institut Ramon Llull.
