PALMYRA by Bertrand Lesca & Nasi Voutsas (UK, 30 min)

Two writers explore revenge and the politics of destruction. PALMYRA prompts us to go beyond the news. Looking at the destruction of Syria’s historical sites, it’s a political drama that mixes fact and fiction. Musing on what we consider to be barbarian, the show invites us to go beyond the news: taking a closer look at events, it’s about questioning civilisation and what lies beneath it. Written by Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas, they’re Greek and French respectively, with previous show EUROHOUSE probing the aftermath of the Greek referendum.
