the CURRENT SESSIONS presents
Volume VII: On Resistance
RESCUE — REFUSE — RESTRICT
Friday — Sunday, August 18 — 20, 2017
Wild Project, 195 E 3rd Street, New York, NY 10009


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.
