New York, early 1970s. The South Bronx is on fire, literally and symbolically. The middle class has left it; the economy is collapsing; buildings are empty, demolished or set on fire; gangs are making the streets unsafe; sixty per cent of young people are unemployed. They have no money to go to a club, so they palm the streets with their sound systems and pieces of cardboard. They lay a floor and dance on the break. They write their names on the walls, they express their discontent on music. Their resistance to the establishment grows into a culture: hip-hop.

They are little foci of chaos, trying to break the laws and regularities of our world through a ripple effect. Be it solar systems or politics, families or economics: systems tend to sustain themselves, even at the expense of the organisms that are part of them. The jammers that disrupt those systems are precisely the factors that keep them moving and changing.

In HAVOC, Haider Al Timimi takes a closer look at the power of disrupters. The raw explosive energy of hip-hop is the guiding principle here. With a cast of top-level b-boys and b-girls, Al Timimi uses dance and music to explore the disruptive and constructive power of chaos. To the tones of 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised' by protest poet Gil Scott-Heron, driven by anger and hope. 

You will not be able to stay home, brother
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out
You will not be able to lose yourself on skag
And skip out for beer during commercials, because
The revolution will not be televised

(…)

The revolution will not be televised
Will not be televised
Will not be televised
Will not be televised
The revolution will be no re-run, brothers
The revolution will be live

Gil Scott-Heron
