The nomads have the first showing of fragments of a new work at Shunt Bar, London, on 17th October. Using words by Anita Berber and Sebastian Droste, with movement suggested by their choreography from 1920s Berlin, the evening saw the audience drawn through the extraordinary spaces created by Shunt for their current show. For the finale naked performers were glimpsed above a glass ceiling, as the audience stood below them.

“Misled into thinking I was performing a piece of theatre, I was instead plunged into a Steppenwolf-style world, in which the usual norms and rules of polite society no longer applied. I still can't work out what parts of the evening actually happened, and which were products of my own over-active imagination.”
- Rob Lyndon
“I thought the way we utilised the very uniquely designed space was really good, and the result was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it!
