language no problem
„Juck" is Swedish and means thrust. Anarchic, joyful, riotous and explosive, six performers in school uniforms enter the stage and claim their own conditions for "femininity". To the rhythm of a techno beat a thrusting emerges. As it grows the thrusting mutates, flips on its head, contaminating theater space and audience. A manifestation of female sexuality that frees itself from the male gaze without apology.
JUCK was initiated in 2012 and consists of six members. In 2013 they created the short film JUCK that became a viral hit on YouTube.
