About In No Man's Land...

Meeting your mother. Looking for a job. Fleeing violence. Not starve to death... What makes someone leave their world and travel into the unknown? What are the things that lead us to seek a new life? And what do we find along the way? To embark is to know oneself and also to know others. But the journey can also turn into a nightmare, if we lose our footing and are shipwrecked; if the place we arrive at turns its back on us, if we do not find help that responds to our cries for help.

Welcome to this strange land, which is at the same time mine, yours, ours; a no man's land, built by those who come from far away, with strength and desire, to shape it.

In this new project the Company DA.TE Danza, in complicity with the Andalusian Agency of Cultural Institutions, approaches a committed contemporary dance show aimed at all audiences and especially young audiences (from 8 years old). A journey through human rights through real stories and in which the stage and the street are recovered as claiming spaces.

A proposal that included in its creation process the participation of migrants, with no previous experience or training in dance and that arises from our view towards a more inclusive society, where equal opportunities is not an elusive goal but the mark of a new time that starts from the awareness of all.

⸻ Supplementary training proposal
Feeling at home

A training proposal directed by Omar Meza as a complementary activity to the performance of the show "En Tierra de Nadie" by the DA.TE Danza Company.


The "Feeling at home" workshop has a clear social purpose. This workshop promotes participation and pursues an open and inclusive development. One of the main objectives of this workshop is to encourage the development of potentialities and provide each student with resources that allow him/her to express, create and communicate through body language. We will learn to use the body fully, both at a motor and expressive level, to be able to externalize ideas, thoughts, feelings and emotions. All this, in a motivating, renewed and flexible work environment, which ensures the participation and enjoyment of each of the attendees. It is a workshop open to those who wish to dance,
share and enjoy the movement that the body offers us. Students from different backgrounds, knowledge, origins and diversities of all kinds and of all degrees, come to share a space of dance in which diversity is our wealth.

This workshop generates a common creative space among the students, as well as among the teachers who accompany them, in which a cooperative bond is established that fosters a meaningful experience through movement and dance. As tools, dance, play, improvisation, physical contact, the use of voice and scenographic elements, among others, generate a new way of sharing, learning and relating among the participants.
