Rebelact, a new clown group founded in september 2007 in Amsterdam, has been invited by the artists Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum to talk about new forms of protest in Overvecht, Utrecht. In which contexts do or don't they work? With unique images, hilarious filmfragments, talks and debate. After an overview of new forms of actions from Prague, Genoa, Gleneagles and Heiligendamm, there will be room for discussion on future street interventions in Overvecht itself.

During their first assembly the clowns all agreed on one thing: to integrate art into their own lives. Rebelact moves between art, humour, activism and media. Recently, they organised a 'Zombiewalk' in Nijmegen, during 'Buy Nothing Day'. Participants dressed up as consumption zombies, and mingled with the shopping public to gawk at the consumer goods on display.
