Abstract

In 2017 Zoo Indigo presented ‘No Woman’s Land’, a theatrical reaction to the historical story of Lucia and many other walking women at the end of WWII alongside Rosie and Ildikó’s experiences of their own walk. There is an unspoken reference to current plights of many refugees. Created in collaboration with Digital Artist, Barret Hodgson, and Musician, Matt Marks, the work takes its audience on a rhythmical trek through digitally projected past and present landscapes of the post-apocalypse. Emulating the border crossings that Lucia walked and the duo retraced; the digital media and performance text crisscrosses between then and now, between Poland and Germany. A Weimar Kabarett framework is employed; showcasing a series of acts that allow the performers to embrace ‘gallows humour’ as a mechanism to discuss challenging truths.
