When it Breaks it Burns
Battersea Arts Centre
Let’s occupy the schools. Let’s occupy the theatres. Let’s occupy everything.
When It Breaks It Burns is an intervention, a cry, a fight.
In 2015, sixteen lives were changed forever when they occupied their high schools, as part of protests that happened across Brazil. Now, they occupy this space using dance, live music and performance to tell their extraordinary story.
Get up close to the action as real life invades the stage. When It Breaks It Burns envelops the audience in a party, a protest and an uprising.
Running Time: 75 mins | Age Guidance: 12+

‘They take us right inside the chaos and the fear and thrill of the occupation. Dance is revolution, pushing back against the austerity and repression of the state.’ The Guardian
