Coming to Manchester¡¯s Zion Arts Centre from 10 February 2012
An award-winning international touring exhibition by artist-activist Liz
Crow
 
Resistance: which way the future? takes as its starting point the Nazi
programme of mass-murder which targeted disabled people and became the
blueprint for the larger holocaust.

What turned doctors and nurses into killers? What stopped ordinary people
from speaking out? And what does this history mean for all of us today?

Over ten years in the making, the exhibition recently returned from its run
at Washington DC?s Kennedy Center, where a visitor wrote ¡°One of the most
powerful things I have ever experienced. I was so amazed by it, I went back
to see it twice more.¡±  It comes to Manchester immediately following a
highly successful period of installation at M Shed in Bristol.

The opening drama follows the story of Elise, a patient who sweeps the
institution in which she lives. She watches buses full of patients leave and
return empty. When her turn comes, 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.
 
Director Liz Crow says ¡°This is an episode of history that is virtually
hidden, yet the values that underpinned it still echo through disabled
people¡¯s lives today. We can¡¯t change history, but we can learn how to
influence the future. The events of the holocaust came to an end because
ordinary people resisted. I want audiences to feel inspired to get involved,
be effective and find the courage to be a part of change. Resistance deals
in a difficult subject but is infused with a sense of possibility.¡±

Resistance is at Zion Arts Centre from 10 February until 3 March
335 Stretford Road, Hulme M15 5ZA.  0161 226 1912.  zionarts.com
