BATH — Resurgence Dance Company’s “We Are Rebels” returns for three performances at the Chocolate Church Arts Center, 804 Washington St.

Shows are at 7 p.m. June 23 and 24, and at 2 p.m. June 25.

“We Are Rebels” is an original contemporary ballet about the tale of Fea, a young woman who decides to take a stand against an unjust government. She will dare to leave her job in The Palace, say goodbye to her sister, and risk everything to find a fulfilling path. The queen has people looking out for her, and discovers Fea’s plans to join the Rebel Army. Sending a powerful assassin after Fea and her compatriots, the queen continues on with her experimental human testing, knowing that the Rebels won’t be a problem for long.

Director Ashley Steeves, founder of Resurgence Dance Company, has incorporated guest appearances with multiple sister companies, and conducted auditions seeking new talent. 

“We Are Rebels” is set in a dystopian future where lines between good and evil are challenged and divide even those in the palace, preparing everyone for the imminent battle.

The characters’ stories are told through contemporary dance, electronica music and acting. The full-length contemporary ballet features electronic beats, anime style costuming, and may not be suitable for young children.

Tickets at the door are $16 for adults and $12 for students. Advance tickets, online at, are $12 for adults and $8 for students.
