Passing the Bechdel test

performance by Jan Martens

Choreographer Jan Martens gets together with 13 female and nonbinary people to examine the status quo of gender diversity and equality in today's world. They crawl into each other's skin, and into that of female authors and personalities of then and now: from Virginia Woolf and 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. From the standpoint of his choreographic perspective, and together with 13 youths, he has designed a manifesto for the future.
