What if there is already enough for everyone? What do you want to do next? Should we act in spite of the prevailing orders, or instead of them, or through them? What is the minimum we need to have in common to work together?

The Rebel Man Standard is Jamila Johnson-Small, Hamish MacPherson and Zinzi Minott. They work together to re-consider the conventional structures that support artistic creation and practice within dance, sharing resources and conversations around the political implications of this in order to imagine and enable alternatives. The project explores the political potentials, and potential ramifications, of dance and choreographic practice, socially and for the body of the doer, through a range of activities happening between July 2015 and May 2016. The process began with the three participating in the danceWEB scholarship at Impulstanz, Vienna, where they met keyon and Hana.

The Rebel Man Standard is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
