This is more explicitly political than most things on here, but in a human rights way, and I thought it would be of some interest.

I assume most people are aware of the Gangnam Style phenomenon. And of the many spoofs/offshoots it has spawned.

One was by Ai Weiwei and was pulled, very quickly, by the Chinese Govt.

This video is a response to it orchestrated by Anish Kapoor:

It is of interest because of who is involved: It was choreographed by Akram Khan and features Deborah Bull and Tamara Rojo.


There is a brief article on it here:

That would have been fun to see. :)
