Description

All-female Swedish dance troupe JUCK perform their signature "hump" dance in public spaces to provoke, inspire and blow up norms. "Femininity is a word we can fill with whatever we want"—and they do. "It's tiresome that it's still so provoking to see women not apologizing for their existence"—and they don't. The #MeToo movement finally has its theme song and dance. Angie Driscoll
