Today’s shared purpose, resistance, is at once urgent and varied. Volume VII will present work by nine artists, each developing their own choreographies of resistance using strategies of conflict, transgression, and care. On Resistance represents a spectrum of movement which challenges systems of control by reconfiguring the body into a medium for opposition.
