Presented by Zoo Indigo
Please note, this is a work in progress performance
In 1945, at the end of World War II, Ildiko’s grandmother, expelled from her home, walked 350km through the fractured landscape of Europe with her two young children and all her belongings dragged in a cart.
In 2015, Ildiko and Rosie retraced her footsteps, crossing borders, climbing fences, bleeding, crying, blistering, and carrying their flat pack children.
Now the performers walk, fall and stumble on a treadmill, immersed in an environment of archival and original videos and voice-overs. No Woman’s Land is a humorous and moving stagger through landscapes of past and present stories. Visual, physical and visceral, the performance explores the post war apocalypse, migration, home and displacement.
Catch No Woman’s Land in a double bill with 1.9 (7.30pm). Two shows for just £16!
