Useful information
about the performance

Choreographer Muhammed Kaltuk and his ensemble Company MEK give authentic expression to the young, activist generation through powerful social dance style. The award-winning dance language of the Swiss dancer with Turkish roots expresses the various realities of young people and the rage of their protests against the powerlessness of the lack of a voice. “Father Politics” unmasks the poses of politics and pillories polarising opinion-making. Kaltuk and his company MEK rely on multinational diversity; the dance develops rousing images to rap songs and protest songs and vibrates with the energy of a generation that wants to make a difference.

"You say you care about society, about everyone. But do you really mean everyone? Even those without papers? Or with a headscarf?"
