fleischlin/meser – I JUST WANNA FUCKING DANCE oder Begeisterung und Protest

“Standing man”. That is the moniker that internet users gave to Erdem Gündüz, the choreographer who protested on Taksim Square by remaining completely immobile, his eyes firmly fixed on the statue of the founding fathers of the Turkish Republic. It is his approach to protest that inspired this choreographical study of dissidence.

 

We were interested in the movements produced by people who are at odds with systems but don’t want to throw stones. Made up of movements lifted from video footage of pacifist gatherings, the piece pays homage to those people who use their mere presence to protest. It is an evening that will see dancers, their faces covered by animal masks or coloured balaclavas, explore the physical potential of non-violent resistance.
