R-ESISTERE is a dance-concert on the theme of resistance. It originates from the desire of embodying a sense of revolution and it portrays protest as an essential part of being human, challenging the social beliefs around it.
The performers embody a manifesting crowd with the energy of a rock concert audience. We all fight for or against something; can we make our fight exciting and worth the effort?
R-ESISTERE is not about revolution. It is the manifestation of the trust that things will go better: love will appear, sooner or later, we just need to endure a bit longer and keep our voices loud.
