ein Projekt von fleischlin/meser

We are interested in the movements that result when people disagree with systems, but are unwilling to utter curses, clench their fists or throw stones.

The dancer Erdem Gündüz stood on Taksim Square on June 18, 2013, staring at a portrait of the Turkish State’s founder Atatürk. He just stood there. For hours. This quiet action of one individual developed incredible power within a very short time. All the world was talking about a man who just stood still amidst the tumult, the “Standing Man”.

There are innumerable people whose physical presence – standing, walking, sitting, hopping, dancing – carries their protest into the streets. They are the protagonists of our evening.

From documentary videos, we have extracted movement sequences from protest rallies and have taken extracts from speeches making critical and constructive statements on today’s circumstances. These fragments form the basis of our study on dissent. 

An evening about the potential of non-violent resistance and an appeal for civil disobedience.

the secret of change is to focus all of your energy,

not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
