GAZTE (Young person)
(Premièred in 2 July 2021)
Co-production with the OINKARI DANCE GROUP
They are talkative. Absolutely: like hens in a hen house, they are seldom silent. Peckers. Boisterous. As our mother would say, “wicked chatterboxes”. Of course! They are ready to live every single day to the full!
Brimming with strength. Overflowing. Longing. Passionate. Alive.
They love to dance. But not just dance, you see? Besides dancing, listening to music, making music, doing sports, studying… They love nature, travel, they are affectionate party animals, activists in sex.
Little by way of foolishness, silliness. They are not as flighty as some of you might think. Very light on their feet. No doubt about that. And their hearts, too. Always beating happily.
Like us, they need a sense of togetherness. Gathered in hugs, being still, gazing at each other and, without further ado, understanding each other.
This is an imperfect, defiant hen house. They are young, do not easily conform and disagree about many things.
With the roles established by this society, with labels, prejudices, restrictions on freedom, gag laws, corrupt policies, the education system, barriers. NO, THEY DON’T.
THEY DON’T AGREE.
