The most peculiar one is the lady with a black body and stretched shirt, black socks arriving over the knees and a motorbike helmet that reflects what surrounds her.

Blenard Azizaj and Maya Gomez present NoBody´s Land, a powerful piece choreographed and danced by the duo which with masterly interpretation, stage a complex scenario made out of human dynamics.
