How do you fight for a better world? Who or what are you fighting against? Who is a friend and who is an enemy?
In Riot, choreographer and sociologist Alida Dors makes the turmoil of the world tangible. We see nine dancers revolt. They need each other to keep going. Side by side they fight against the common enemy. However, the face of that enemy is not one face; it changes color, system, gender and origin. Black versus white, LGBTQ versus straight, poor versus rich, and the West versus the rest. But are those differences really that big? Dance, spoken word, film and live music come together in this performance about people, about us, in the field of revolt, anger and hope.
The cause of the riot were the rioters
From her hip-hop roots, Alida creates adventurous interdisciplinary dance chronicles - socially and politically aware, urgent and relevant.
