Terra Nullius - CANCELLED

  • 23.04 — 03.05 2020
  • Artists in Residence
  • Espaço Alkantara

Terra nullius is a concept in international law used to define territory that is not owned by anyone and can therefore be occupied. Some territories are still considered terra nullius today, such as Bir Tawill (a strip of land between Egypt and Sudan), Antarctica, international waters and the moon. But terra nullius also holds a poetic meaning — an idea of an unexplored land, an oasis of freedom where we might restart and rethink our idea of society.

Paula Diogo spent a year in Reykjavik attempting to capture the experience of a place through personal and collective stories. She used two simple actions: walking and writing. The piece began its slow migration from Iceland to Portugal two years ago. In October, it arrives at Teatro Nacional D. Maria II as an audio-walk that happens in the street and ends in the theatre. Or that spills out from the theatre space into the urban geography of the city and into the virtual space of discussion and thought.
