Resistance is a dual-screen, moving image installation. It explores the values that underpinned the Nazi programme of mass-murder targeting disabled people, reveals how people found the courage to resist, and examines how this chapter of history remains strikingly relevant today.
The work has recently returned from Washington DC’s Kennedy Center where one visitor commented: “One of the most powerful things I have ever experienced. I was so amazed by it, I went back to see it two more times, while I was there. Each time I saw more and took more away from the experience. A month later it is still with me.”
In Liverpool, Resistance won a Liverpool Daily Post Arts Award and a fantastic responses from audiences: “It is not often that words fail me, but I can’t begin to describe the impact this devastatingly-powerful installation had on me. This is tremendously important work, brilliantly and concisely realised into a package which will haunt me for a long, long time.”
In Portland, Resistance will show at the Brackenbury Methodist Church, Fortuneswell DT5 1LP from Friday 17 to Sunday 26 September
The work has subtitles, BSL and audio description and the venue is wheelchair-accessible. Run time: 30 minutes
