Instant Dissidence is an Ireland-based company directed by me, Rita Marcalo. It is my way of bringing different artists together, in different combinations, to realise different ideas: through Instant Dissidence I invent ways of offering other people art experiences and solve creative problems.
Instant Dissidence is also a socially-engaged and ecologically-engaged company: we foreground the role that dance/choreography can play as a social engine; we are ‘artivists’ who believe in the power of connecting art and social consciousness.
In October 2018 the United Nations warned that we have 12 years to give up our current civilization and create a new one in order to avoid a climate and biodiversity catastrophe. In October 2018 I made a pledge: over the next 12 years Instant Dissidence will make 12 works, each acting as a mirror (and warning) to society as to whether or not we are moving in the right direction.
