Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) and Auckland Theatre Company are proud to present Kip Chapman’s The Resistance from Thursday 16 February – Saturday 11 March 2023 only at The Rebel Theatre.
The Resistance is a giant protest rally exploring the power of friendship, the pain of ambition, and the deliciousness of potato chips. Set in the arena of the climate justice movement and its mobilisation on social media, interactive theatre maker Kip Chapman takes over The Rebel Theatre and immediately destroys the fourth wall, welcoming the audience on the stage and in on the action. The Resistance is exciting, challenging and interactive.
Marlee’s on a mission, Hayden is seeking justice, Miro has his head in the clouds and Pepper just wants to blow things up. With this group in charge, it’s no wonder the rally is going nowhere fast. But when Marlee is unexpectedly thrust into the limelight, it suddenly feels as if the whole country is watching. Could these young people save the world?
True to ATYP form, the production features a stellar cast of rising young talent sharing the spotlight with industry greats. Genevieve Lemon (The Dressmaker, Dubbo Championship Wrestling, Prisoner) and Jo Turner take to the Rebel Theatre stage alongside the incredible talents of Diya Goswami, Lakesha Grant, Thea Sholl, and Jack Walton (Netflix’s Clickbait).
