When It Breaks Burns

collective Occupation

WHEN IT BURNS is a performance-act that provokes and displaces new theatrical choreographies, what we call the staging of the uprising.
Presenting the experience of the real in the scene, it creates new performative situations, friction of languages and narratives that embody the desire of a generation to occupy the theater. The piece, which is on the border between document and representation, is a "dance-fight" created by students who lived the radical experience of the occupations of State Schools, and from this encounter, created the choir coletivA, built from the experience of struggle and affection of each performer during the high school spring between 2015 and 2016.
