Resist is a participatory performance work that invites audiences to step up and champion a cause using the ancient art of tug-of-war. Over the course of three hours, participants publicly wage war one-on-one with the PVI conflict resolution team (using a 10 mt rope) over a series of contentious issues that have the community divided.
