The Met Breuer

Theater of the Resist

In conjunction with The Body Politic: Video from the Met Collection, MetLiveArts in collaboration with media and culture writer Kali Holloway presents a nine-week summer series of edgy, timely, and pointedly political performances and films on the Fifth Floor of The Met Breuer. Theater of the Resist takes its name from art making—a technique where the artist uses opposing material to "resist" the medium and thus generating negative space in which to create. The series highlights dance, spoken word, music and film from communities that are outside the hegemony. Hosts include: political journalist and musician Kali Holloway, WQXR host Terrance McKnight, and musician and NYPR host/podcaster Helga Davis.
