Choreographed by Roshanak Jaberi, No Woman’s Land is a multi-disciplinary performance piece that explores the real stories of women in refugee camps. A three-year project featuring seven performers with composition and sound design by Thomas Ryder Payne, and scenography by Trevor Schwellnus, it combines dance, multi-media and verbatim theatre and has been developed in collaboration with The Institute for Research and Development on Inclusion and Society (IRIS) and Dr. Shahrzad Mojab, professor at the University of Toronto.
Violence against women is the most pervasive violation of human rights in the world. This, together with the current greatest mass displacement of people since WWII, brings an urgency to this visceral work  as it explores the realities and plight of refugee women.
