About In No Man's Land...

This 20-minute contemporary dance piece for non-conventional spaces, presented by the DA.TE Danza Company, originates from its recently premiered show "En Tierra de Nadie" (2022).

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.

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.

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.

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.
