Poetic Resistance ~ Nadia Vadori Gauthier


Poetic Resistance ~ Book “Danser Résister” .
One minute of dance a day by Nadia Vadori-Gauthier :

“I live in Paris. On January 7, 2015, the evening of the Charlie Hebdo attack, I was deeply shaken. I came up with the project One Minute of Dance Every Day to manifest a sensitive and poetic presence in the world and connect heterogeneous intensities by putting myself into play, alone or in relation to others. I wanted to assign myself a daily action, small but concrete and reiterated, coherent with my beliefs and working towards a living poetry, while at the same time creating a distinct, discrete work of art (the reason I number my dances).
This single minute requires hours of work each day. Until I complete it, it haunts me. Once it’s out there, I let go of all other potential minutes for the rest of the day.” — Quote from leprixdelessence.net .

❤️ 2 Russia


❤️ 2 Russia ~ “With love to Russia” – Kiss-in protest in front of the Russian embassy in Berlin against controversial anti-gay law in Russia. Under the motto “Enough is enough” , with the slogans “With love to Russia”, and “Putin go homo” demonstrators carried posters with the portrait of president Putin with heavy makeup (speech notes below).

Speech notes :

Berlin history shows : It is a small step from exclusion to violence. We here are kissing men and kissing women out in the open , just like it shows in the nearby ‘Memorial to Homosexuals Persecuted Under Nazism’. A warning to all of us. That is why we protest here at the embassy of Russia against criminalizing kissing.

Shit , this is a Kiss-in , go on , go kiss , smooch, each other ! Mr Putin lets make love. Like men can have a women bosses , and Blacks can sit in the front of a bus in the US, and now have a black president. Don’t be afraid of kissing people… All you need is Love. With Love to Russia! Think about it , love is not a fuckin crime – Rather then applaud , smooch, each other , it’s a Kiss-in.
