    Both a tribute to the choreographer’s classical studies and a melancholic and subtle meditation on the themes of Homer’s Odyssey, No Lander is a discourse on longing and belonging.
    Five dancers exposed to an unrelenting space, play sailors lost at sea... nothing to hang onto, no roots, no light and no land. Falling in and out of intricate partner work as they grapple to hold on to something, their flesh emerges from the darkness in waving and sculptural torsions. Stark industrial lighting and live captured sound collide and transform the stage into a deserted wreck.

    No Lander is commissioned by The Place with support from ResCen at Middlesex University, TIR Danza Italy and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Originally developed in the frame of ArtsCross London 2013, a research project by ResCen/Middlesex University.
