The distinguished Dutch director and visual artists Dries Verhoeven stages a peripatetic performance / political act in the streets of Athens. Twenty viewers and twenty economic immigrants / political refugees come together in a downtown Athens station. There, equipped with iPods to provide audio information, each ‘watcher’ listens to the biography of one of the immigrants, who could be their guide through the streets of their home city. The pairs of viewers and guides become neighbours of a unique kind as the latter show the former a side of Athens they may never have seen before. Following on from performances in the Netherlands, Germany and Spain, No Man’s Land has been specially adapted for performance in Athens where, according to its creator, “conditions are urgent enough to demand a moving, poetic and meaningful response to the question: “What can a multicultural environment mean?”
