Event Description

MetLiveArts in collaboration with media and culture writer Kali Holloway presents an eight-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. This series is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Body Politic: Video from The Met Collection, on view at The Met Breuer, June 20–September 3, 2017. It will highlight 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.

All times: 6–8 pm at The Met Breuer, Floor 5
Performances are free with Museum admission
Advanced registration recommended

This program is offered Free with Museum Admission, thanks to Janet and Howard Kagan and The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, Inc.
