"A product of Morocco's traditional “open space” for debate - the theatre, No Man's Land foregrounds and predicts the “Mouvement du 20 FĂ©vrier”. It shrewdly highlights the seemingly irreconcilable struggles, conflicting aspirations, and complex socio-political realities of postcolonial Morocco. As various groups vie for power in the still-unfolding “Arab Spring”, Kaouti’s No Man’s Land reminds us that we ought to be paying closer attention to artists, the voices of “insiders” and to performative powers." --George F Roberson, editor
