World premiere season: No Man's Land

New Zealand has never witnessed a world music collaboration like this before: John Psathas’ “love letter to peace” features international musicians performing live alongside 150 virtual musicians from more than 25 countries, including Serj Tankian (Lebanon/Armenia/ USA), Meeta Pandit (India), UNESCO Artist for Peace Márta Sebestyén (Hungary) and Refugees of Rap (Syria/Palestine).

No Man’s Land brings together the descendants of opposing forces in World War I and reunites them in friendship and musical exchange on the sites where their forefathers fought a century ago.

Director Jasmine Millet and cinematographer Mathew Knight filmed musicians around the globe and these segments will be projected, and their sound integrated, into the live performances. Together these virtual and live performers create an international orchestra performing music that leaps musical genres as it does borders, from folk to jazz to rock and classical.

Presented in partnership by Tourmakers and Victoria University of Wellington, with support from the Lottery Grants Board.

No Man's Land is also featuring at the NZ Festival on Wednesday 2 March, Auckland Arts Festival on Friday 4 March and at WOMAD on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 March.
