Good storytelling strengthens social movements
An atypical & non analytical act of resistance – maybe that’s why it is so powerful.
It’s about the French theatre group: Royal De Luxe. Just check these site: http://www.zonelibre44.free.fr/royal_de_luxe.htm (it’s french, sorry, but they don’t have an official website) – or watch these video to catch a bit of the magic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXOOFhKF9qM&feature=related - there is also a dvd about them: http://www.shellac-altern.org/Royal_de_luxe.html.
In my point of view - they resist because they let people dream – they are critical about our society but without moralizing – I think these acts of resistance are just as important as the more intellectual and analytical.
