Seventeen dancers set society in motion

From the yellow vests to climate truants, what happens when we go against the flow in an act of rebellion? Jan Martens took the title of this performance from a warning uttered by Chinese President Xi Jinping. His supercast of seventeen dancers, aged between 15 and 68, examine the body language of every resistance movement to the turbulent sound of protest songs: an exhausting, emotional choreography for the big stage, as an ode to civil disobedience.
