British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2017

21st-26th August at Zoo Venues

This summer we return to the British Council Edinburgh Showcase for the third time with Nocturnes, a multi-media twist on a 50s spy thriller set during the height of the cold war.

Two operatives holed up in a Berlin apartment in the Russian Zone await instructions.  As time passes their relationship to each other and to the orders they receive from their superiors falls apart.  Performed on what appears to be a film soundstage, two actors voice a film they can’t see and never acknowledge. But who is in control? And as the film gathers pace, can the past be changed by present-day actions?
Nocturnes asks important questions about truth and free will and about how we understand what’s real in this post-truth era.

Watch a documentary on the early stages of the making process for Nocturnes:
