The Hungarian company Recirquel was awarded 5* by six leading critics for the performance of My Land at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Cultura Nova presents the Dutch première of this acclaimed performance in collaboration with Parkstad Limburg Theaters.
In this stunning new production, a woman embodies the metaphorical role of Gaia, the Mother Earth goddess. She remains out of reach of six men who are fighting over who is in charge of the country.
Last year, directed by Bence Vági, the company released the hit Paris de Nuit. My Land has a very different atmosphere with a cast of an exceptionally high technical calibre. The performance is a special mix of circus and dance, presented on a huge sand table that is illuminated from below.
