About This Project

No Woman’s Land is an evocative new work based on real stories of women in refugee camps. The production uses dance, multi-media and verbatim theatre to explore the issues of displacement and gender based violence.

No Woman’s Land is an intimate, thought provoking and emotionally moving work that honours refugee women’s courage, resilience, and shares their extraordinary stories of survival. The project involved a three-year research and development process and will premiere in March 2019.
