Description

Crowd choreography, tensely balanced between imposed order and aspirations for freedom, with the corps de ballet as citizens coping and resilient.

Any attempt (at an uprising) will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones. The striking title refers to threats by totalitarian regimes confronted with street protests. On stage, Jan Martens is presenting different approaches to organization by protesters, and also by law enforcement and the military. In the microcosm of citizens, the contemporary corps de ballet checks and covers the area, systematically following geometrical lines, while opposite is the democratic energy of the group. Gradually bodies find freedom, first by walking, then demanding the right to also protest against permanent mobility as imposed by neo-liberalism.

Bodies join in an ode to freedom.
