REVOLT – The Manifest is an ongoing research that will result in the theatre performance REVOLT (14+) in 2021. Through workshops with young people, Cecilia will research activism, collective lies, social conformity and the psychological repercussions of these themes. How can they make they voice heard? What are the topics close to these young people’s hearts? How to stay critical in times of ongoing insecurity and political distress? The research takes place in different cities in the Netherlands: Maastricht, Groningen, Rotterdam, Tilburg and Amsterdam.
REVOLT – The Manifest is a coproduction between Stichting Cecilia Moisio, Maas theater en dans and the Dutch Dance Days.
