Juck (Thrust)

(Juck)

JUCK drew attention to themselves in 2013 with a viral video showing several girls performing an original dance in which each made her femininity apparent in her own way. This short film, part documentary, part videoclip, is a closer intro to the philosophy behind the entire movement.

The dance group JUCK was established with the idea of developing a simple motion concealing a deeper message. The result is a dance consisting mainly of the rhythmic twitching of the pelvis, which the group’s members, dressed in school uniforms, like to perform in public. Their main aim is not to provoke, but rather to raise their voices and to inspire other women. When asked what femininity is, they reply that every woman can define this term for herself. It is specifically this dance movement, which may offend the more straitlaced members of society, that allows them to shake off negative stereotypes, oppression and abuse, and to express their femininity, strength and freedom.

How to Disappear

Computer shooting games are usually a faithful replica of real wartime conflicts, but an important real world element is missing – the option to desert rather than take part.
