Welcome to Resilient Revolt

We are an international network and movement of theatre activists dealing with climate justice. Creatively, we perform plays around this issue locally and internationally, on the streets, in theatres, in and as political actions, and in unexpected places. We are part of global social movements around climate justice, and at the same time assist them with our skills.

 such groups

For that we follow these principles:

1) Horizontal action: We try to facilitate processes (inside and outside the theatre) within our network as horizontal as possible, as we are all experts of our life realities.

2) Multiplication of network, methods and groups, as well as performances: Movements only live when they grow and are nurtured. We permanently search for new groups within our cause. We offer workshops to create such groups. We invite you to join with your existing group!

3) Resilience: Our activism is sustainable, prevents burn-out, is playful and enables us to act within multiple ecological crises.

4) Inclusiveness: Climate justice means working against racisms, ableisms, class society and capitalism, heteropatriarchy, generational injustice and for a good life for all. We want to mirror this within our movement and show that a good life is already possible today for everyone and includes everyone.

We know that we are constantly failing ourselves with them but we embrace this and are fault-friendly.

Founded in 2019 in Slovenia, we are both an international group of performers and facilitators but also a strategic partnership of organisations aimed at long term sustainable change in creative ways. Our origin lies within Theatre of the Oppressed but we openly invite all the arts.

Our international networking activities include regular international meetings, such as the festival, facilitator exchanges (recent focus on adult education), trainings, residencies. You might see many of us being active with performances and workshops in their local communities towards our common goal.
