No Man's Land

13 - 14 Dec 2017

“Life is beautiful but the world is hell.” – Harold Pinter

Playfreely returns with combustible zeal, augmented by a cast of dynamic musicians in a mouthwatering new music programme across two nights. No Man’s Land explores electro-acoustic inventiveness, pushing pace and space into electrifying terrains that defy boundaries and definition. Playfreely exhorts fearlessness. In this special edition, we celebrate musicians who super-charge their verve to galvanize change in today’s world.

No Man’s Land is the fifth instalment of Playfreely done with event partner The Projector, featuring a strong mix of musicians from different corners of the world who constantly refine their contributions to new music.
