WHAT YOU SEE FESTIVAL 2022

Questioning, disrupting and disturbing bodies. Bodies that take the streets, chain themselves to trees, and throw their fists in the air. Bodies that embrace, love strangers and bravely dismantle resistance. MY BODY, MY PROTEST was the motto of What You See Festival 2022, through which artists use their bodies to reclaim space and open up new possible worlds for themselves and their audiences.
