No Woman’s Land
Artist: Roshanak Jaberi
Location: Bagnani Hall, Traill College, Trent University

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 an ensemble of seven performers, this interdisciplinary production uses dance, theatre and multi-media to speak to the plight and resistance of refugee women.

Violence against women is the most pervasive violation of human rights in the world. This fact, together with the current refugee crisis—which is the greatest mass displacement of people since WWII—brings an urgency to this visceral work.

No Woman’s Land has been developed over three years in collaboration with Doris Rajan of The Institute for Research and Development on Inclusion and Society (IRIS) and with the consultation of Dr. Shahrzad Mojab, professor at the University of Toronto.
