Willkommen Damen and Gentlemen! Roll up, stroll in and join us on a spectacular stagger through the post-apocalyptical wasteland of 1945. Before your very eyes the bearded ladies run on treadmills as they conjure up past and present digital landscapes. Masquerading as men for your entertainment, and their own protection, the bearded duo use gallows humour to launch you on an unimaginable, unconceivable plight of flight and migration. 1945. Lucia Rippel, expelled from her place of birth, walked 220 miles across the fractured landscape of Europe, with her two children and all her belongings dragged in a cart. In 2015, Ildikó Rippel and Rosie Garton retraced her footsteps, crossing borders, climbing fences, bleeding, crying, and blistering, and carrying their flat-pack children. No Woman’s Land is a politically charged, darkly humorous nod to 1920’s Kabarett, entwining the duo’s experience of the walk with Lucia’s story.
