In No man's land, Maayan Cohen Marciano continues her work with the nude body. With collaborators Adi Shildan and Michal Samama, they use the nude body's ability to be always present simultaneously within and between different territories. Using well-formulated movement mechanisms, their bodies break apart and reassemble, release and reclaim cultural and social contexts, and acquire new essences and meanings. They create a temporary autonomy in which they redefine the bodily, feminine, architectural, audial, and performative space.
*The performance includes nudity
