The No Man’s Land play will pull together memories from the past decades to tell personal stories regarding the abandoned no man’s land areas in the Raunistula neighbourhood... An old, abandoned forage silo will link all the events together and appear in the performance through projected imag
The selected lot in the Raunistula district is set to undergo major changes in the near future. The old forage silo has already been dismantled and new construction is about to start. The changes have instigated a lively discussion in the community and caused emotional reactions, both for and against the changes. No Man’s Land will capture and store this changing landscape with its attached memories and strong personal emotions.
Wasteland is the outback of the city environment, a true no man’s land. No control, no purpose. No Man’s Land is also a state of mind. Here people can open new spaces within themselves, see themselves in a different light and recall and bring out long forgotten memories. Reaching No Man’s Land requires some risk taking – risks that are rewarded with deeper understanding.
No Man’s Land is being produced by the Luojakunta Association.
18–28 August, 8pm: Raunistula wasteland area (between Konsantie Street and the railway tracks)
25 / 15 €
Notice: the show is held outdoors and the stand is not covered.
