Hands up! With a protest sign in between, this posture is the symbol of western protest culture. But what kind of protest are we giving birth to? Is it a symbol of freedom, or one of aggression? Looking to the future, Lithuanian choreographer and activist Agnietė Lisičkinaitė examines ‘protest’ as an action in itself: what is it, and which forms can it take? In this ‘dance action’, we raise our hands and embrace the fragile balance between critical dedication and utter surrender, between resistance and anarchy.
At the start of the performance Hands Up. takes you on a 15-minute walk after which the performance continues inside.
