Dancers Turn Trump Quotes into Something Beautiful

Let's be honest - we are living is a very tumultuous political climate nowadays. And though it may feel like there's no way to express your feelings and thoughts, there is good news...we can always dance.

Which is precisely what choreographer Redha Medjellekh thought. He and his agency, Red is Dancing, partnered with San Francisco based project 836M to create an awesome video where dancers take quotes directly from our Commander in Chief and interpret them through movement. Quotes such as...

"Laziness is a trait in blacks."
"Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best...they're rapists."

The result is an incredibly powerful example of how dance can be used to make a statement and speak your mind without using a single word.

About the creators: Red is Dancing makes viral videos, ad campaigns, and short films that all feature dance that seeks to break down barriers and mesh cultures from around the world. 836M is a project that commissions artists to create work inspired by relevant social and cultural events.
