SOLD OUT Jan Martens - Passing The Bechdel Test (performance)

◻ Choreographer Jan Martens gets together with 13 youths to examine the status quo of gender diversity and equality in today's world. ◻

"There are some stories which need to be retold by each generation." - Virginia Woolf (1927)

Thirteen young people crawl into each other's skin, and into that of female authors and personalities of then and now: from Virginia Woolf to Jeanette Winterson to Susan Sontag, Rebecca Solnit and Solange. Text fragments from letters, diaries, lyrics, essays and TED Talks form the framework into which their own biographies are included.

Belgian choreographer and dancer Jan Martens has a preference for popular culture and current themes. In 2016, with The Common People, and by way of blind dates on stage, he asked pertinent questions about privacy and the role of social media. For the first time, he is now well on the map with text and gender diversity. From the standpoint of his choreographic perspective, and together with 13 young F/Xes, he has designed a manifesto for the future.
