Soldier, Soldier

A new music video by Russian artist Manizha

(31.03.2022) “Soldier, soldier, you’re somebody’s brother, son and father, not a toy in somebody’s hands.” A new music video by the brilliant and controversial Russian artist, Manizha, released on her YouTube channel on March 13, 2022, was timed to coincide with the day’s protests. It is timed, also, to come just before the spring conscription, when Russia’s newest recruits will be offered contracts to serve in a foreign war. The choreography of “Soldier, Soldier” is hauntingly reminiscent of 1920’s German dance, of expressionist anti-war pieces by Kurt Joos or Mary Wigman.
