Their lives were changed forever by the high school occupations of 2015 and 2016 in Brazil. Using dance, live music and performance, they reveal the reality and brutal intensity of living inside a political movement. Get up close to the action and their extraordinary stories, as real life invades the stage.
When It Breaks It Burns is a cry, a fight, an uprising.
