“The body is a curious and revelatory body, and above all a social body that is sensitive to changes in society” Emio Greco | Pieter C.Scholten
Why do we dance? What do you dance for? What is your dance about?
This 1st edition of Body in Revolt is focused on club culture as an initiator of changes, as a form of activism, as an artistic expression where dancing is seen as an urgency in times of socio-political crisis. With a diverse panel of guest-speakers, we gather to address such urgency through the moving and inspiring narratives of Jazar Crew from Palestine, MambaNegra and LYZZA from Brazil/Netherlands, Tijana T from Serbia, White Noise Movement and Bassiani from Georgia.
Special collaboration with Deep Focus Webdocs:
AYED – Jan Beddegenoodts
“What's important now is to get rid of the occupation of the mind.” Ayed Fadel is a member of Jazar Crew and one of the leading figures of the Palestinian cultural underground scene.
NAJA – Jan Beddegenoodts
“We dance together we fight together.” A portrait about Naja Orashvili, one of the thriving forces behind BASSIANI/HOROOM & the white noise movement.
Only fighting is constant and change comes only after struggle.
DANCING TEHERAN – Shoresh Kalantari
18 year old Maedeh Hojabri was arrested in Teheran after sharing her dance videos - one of which was viewed close to one million times - on Instagram. The 'dance video' evolved into a huge protest - of a women's movement that claims the right to its own identity, its own body and freedom.
THE VOICE OF THE FAVELA – Annabella Stieren
Hip-hop singer Carolina Rebouças lives in the slums of one of the most violent cities in Brazil, Fortaleza. Against the background of the Brazilian elections, she sings about the existence of the most vulnerable.
Club Culture has always been a source of artistic inspiration therefore we invited international performance artists who use the body as a medium with works that resonate with the topics of the day. Rodrigo Sobarzo, Federica Dauri, Kiril Bikov and Julian Weber invite the viewers, through their performances, to engage and experience the occupied body, the social body, the body in crisis: the Body in Revolt.
To embody the day experience, a queer-techno after party will follow in collaboration with Spielraum at Club Radion.
