Keynote lecture on the book Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto
Speaker: Tricia Hersey

Presented with Rosendal Teater as a part of Bastard International Performing Arts Festival

What would it be like to live in a well-rested world? Far too many of us have claimed productivity as the cornerstone of success. We subject our bodies and minds to work at an unrealistic, damaging, and machine‑level pace. In this talk, Tricia Hersey, author of Rest is Resistance, casts an illuminating light on our troubled relationship with rest and how to imagine and dream our way to a future where rest is exalted. Our worth does not reside in how much we produce, especially not for a system that exploits and dehumanizes us. Rest, in its simplest form, becomes an act of resistance and a reclaiming of power because it asserts our most basic humanity. We are enough.

Rest Is Resistance is rooted in spiritual energy and centered in Black liberation, womanism, somatics, and Afrofuturism. Rest Is Resistance is a call to action, a battle cry, a field guide, and a manifesto for all of us who are sleep deprived, searching for justice, and longing to be liberated from the oppressive grip of Grind Culture.

The event is a collaboration between Litteraturhuset i Trondheim and Rosendal Teater.
