Radical Cheerleading

schwere reiter

In recent major conflicts within capitalist democracies, dance as a form of demonstration has taken a firm place. Be it the "Standing Man" in Gezi Park, yoga sessions during Occupy or the dancers of the Egyptian National Ballet, dance expression has always proven to be an effective means of peaceful protest. "Embodied protest" and "protest choreographies" have therefore long been part of a new self-image of contemporary dance practitioners. "Radical Cheerleading" is one of these forms of expression, used in a wide variety of contexts. It was developed by queer-feminist activists in the 1990s. Codes of "cheerleading", known from athletic competitions, are used and subverted in this production to convey its own messages. Glamour, glitter and a mix of various slogans are elements of this joyful, ironic alternative to militant forms of protest.
