Let’s occupy the schools. Let’s occupy the theatres. Let’s occupy everything.

Their lives were changed forever by the high school occupations of 2015 and 2016 in Brazil. Using dance, live music and performance, they reveal the reality and brutal intensity of living inside a political movement. Get up close to the action and their extraordinary stories, as real life invades the stage.

When It Breaks It Burns is a cry, a fight, an uprising.

coletivA ocupação is comprised of students from different districts of São Paulo, working at the edges of art, activism and education. Directed by Martha Kiss Perone, they have toured to sell-out audiences across Brazil.

Presented as part of Transform 19, a festival of powerful, international performance – 26 April – 4 May 19 -
