RDC reprises ‘We Are Rebels’

The Resurgence Dance Company will present “We Are Rebels” at the Chocolate Church Arts Center the weekend of June 23-25, written and choreographed by RDC co-founder Ashley Steeves.

“We Are Rebels,” incorporates contemporary ballet dance with a fable-like story line set in a dystopian future society ... and it all happened one night while Steeves was listening to tunes with her headphones.

Said Steeves to Lisa Kristoff of the Boothbay Register in January 2015: "I had a vision that included my dancers that was kind of video game-ish and futuristic. I saw a rebel person going up against an evil king and twisted queen … and then it just took on a life of its own. The music was electronic to rock to cinematic."

Here's a bit about the plot in this reprisal show: This is the tale of Fea, a young woman who decides to take a stand against an unjust government. Fea will dare to leave her job in The Palace, say goodbye to her sister, and risk everything to find a fulfilling path. Queen Aki has people looking out for her, and discovers Fea’s plans to join the Rebel Army. Sending a powerful assassin after Fea and her compatriots, The Queen continues on with her experimental human testing, knowing that the Rebels won’t be a problem for long. Fea's younger sister Mae becomes entangled in the web of the King and the Queen. Fea fights her way back to steal her sister away, but in the end, who will survive? 

Performances are Friday, June  23  and Saturday, June 24 at 7 p.m. and  at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 25. Tickets are $16 for adults,  $12 for students and  at the door,  $12/$8 online at Presented  at the Chocolate Church Arts Center, 804 Washington Street,  Bath.
