Production Details / Press Releases
NoBody’s Land is about overcoming barriers and stepping into the unknown, about fugitives, adaptation, migration, transformation: we are all one and the globe has, since its creation, no borders. We are all made of earth, destined to return to it.
Once again de-forming the pre-formed, willing to suffer the loss, we are entering the womb of this earth, the cave where one-eyed Cyclops lives. We can still escape this narrow vision, we can exit it all by becoming Nobody.
