Rest Rebellion sets up a space for rest in a calm, low-stimulus environment and offers a training camp for those who want to learn more about the transformative quality of resting.
The project stems out of refusal to grind the body for capitalism – a system owing a huge debt to the sick and dis/abled people and not stopping the reward of exploitative and destructive behavior.
Angela Alves creates a collective rest and resistance situation in order to dive deep into the power of quitting and embody a rebellious rest practice, far from self-care and depression.
