FATHER POLITICS is a co-production of Company MEK with Kaserne Basel and COLOURS Festival in Stuttgart under the direction of Swiss choreographer Muhammed Kaltuk. The first sketches were created in 2020 as part of the PREMIO Nachwuchspreis Tanz. FATHER POLITICS unmasks the emotionalization of politics, the opinion-making and polarization of political advertising campaigns, the influence and deliberate manipulation through differently interpreted, rewritten, twisted and altered truths. The young, multinational and diverse ensemble tells from a very personal perspective about powerlessness in the face of politics, about being paralyzed when you can't connect, when you don't feel represented. It is about taking a stand. It's about the energies that arise when you politicize yourself and get something moving. Fridays for Future shows that young people are absolutely political. FATHER POLITICS shows the dancing individualities of the ensemble and bundles the energy and strength of the common appearance in powerful common choreographies. With high professionalism and engagingly authentic MEK represents the new powerful, young, thriving generation CHANGE on stage.
