Sited in one of Belfast's most historic buildings, the atmospheric Titanic Drawing Offices, Resistance by Liz Crow is a timely and hopeful work exploring issues of marginalisation and asking what can be done to prevent oppression in the future.
Comprising drama and documentary film and audio material, the dual screen installation takes as its starting point the Nazi programme of mass-murder targeting disabled people. It follows the story of Elise, a patient who sweeps the institution in which she lives. She doesn't speak but watches everything. She watches buses full of patients leave and return empty.
When it's her turn, she knows what's in store. Based on real events, this is the story of one woman's resistance in the only way she could. This emotive installation draws audiences into a deeply touching experience that asks questions about the kind of society we want to be.
