No Man's Land
The show is forbidden for children under 16 years old
5 Reasons not to Miss No Man’s Land at NTB!
- The play: An adaptation for the stage after an Oscar-awarded movie (No Man’s Land by Danis Tanović, Oscar for Best Foreign Movie, 2001). Overall, Tanović’ film gained 42 prizes, including the Award of the European Film Academy for Best Script, César Award for Best Feature Film, Golden Globe for Best Foreign Movie.
- The topic: Although, upon a first reading, it seems a play about the conflict in former Yugoslavia, No Man’s Land is actually a satire against wars everywhere, but also against the international community and press chasing the sensational and rating. A dark comedy about war reminding of the famous novel "CATCH-22" or the series "M*A*S*H".
- The direction: Alexander Morfov, an ultra-famous name due to the previous enactments at NTB (The Tempest and The Visit), amazes again through the spectacular staging (very well supported by his collaborator, stage designer Nikola Toromanov), through emotion and humour.
- The cast: For the part in No Man’s Land, Richard Bovnoczki was nominated for this year’s Uniter Awards. He was joined by young Ciprian Nicula, already known for the excellent part from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, for which he was also nominated by UNITER. Not lastly, Mihai Călin, succeeding in captivating the audience, performing intensely on his back throughout the entire show.
- The soundtrack: As usual, Morfov signs, as in his other shows at NTB, a soundtrack one wishes to listen over and over again for a long time after leaving the performance. You shall hear, among others, Dire Straits (Brothers in Arms), The Doors (LA Woman), Bob Dylan (Knocking on Heaven’s Doors), Johnny Cash (We’ll Meet Again).
