What is it about?

RESESTENCE! is a comedy written and directed by Nicolas Vivier. Created in 2013, played again in 2014, on a tour in Switerland and France in 2015, the play takes a new step: The 2016 Avignon Festival!

An unmissable opportunity

The Avignon Festival is nowadays one of the most important international event in the world of contemporary theater. To be part of the programm is a very nice opportunity for La Ruche company. The festival represents not only the occasion to present our work to people coming from all countries but also to let know the art professionals and journalists about our artistic universe.

The play

The play takes place in a world where all the power is concentrated in the hands of a mysterious entity: The Industry. The foundations of this system stands on privatisation: of life, of common spaces, of knowledge, of language… In this way, one has to have a licence to talk. The characters of the play gather in a basement to speak freely and we discover the world where they live from their dialogues. The play criticizes the ultra-liberalism and the intellectual property but not only. The play questions also the ideas of bravery and cowardice, solidarity and rebellion.
