Simon talks to John Psathas

Featuring 150 musicians from more than 20 countries, including Serj Tankian (Lebanon/Armenia/USA), Meeta Pandit (India) and Márta Sebestyén (Hungary), No Man’s Land brings together the descendants of opposing forces in World War I and reunites them in friendship and musical solidarity on the sites where their grandfathers and great-grandfathers fought a century ago.

This ground breaking new cinematic, multi-media performance work will premier in March at the 2016 NZ Festival and the Auckland Arts Festival. The global orchestra will then go on a nationwide tour to Tauranga, Napier, Whanganui and New Plymouth. 

You can read about the project and view fantastic images and videos of the shoot on the No Mans Land website -
