No Woman’s Land is an evocative new work that explores real stories of women in refugee camps. Conceived and directed by Roshanak Jaberi and created with a powerhouse artistic team and an ensemble of six performers, this interdisciplinary production integrates dance, theatre and multi-media – taking audiences on a journey that reveals the plight and resistance of refugee women.

The project has been developed in collaboration with the Institute for Research and Development on Inclusion and Society (IRIS) and is based on research conducted by Doris Rajan and Dr. Shahrzad Mojab.
