Ready to Rebel is a performance that uses yoga as an example and a catalyst to explore the contradictions of the counterculture and of Zen practices within today’s neoliberal paradigm.
While performativity needs repetition in order to consolidate the norm or conventions, there will always be the slight hope of error and bad copies as a possible form of resistance. Failure and error can also become tools for counteracting the use of yoga and other spiritual practices to boost productivity, or to sabotage their exploitation by the worlds of fitness and beauty.

Ariadna Guiteras is a visual artist who won the research grant in the 2014 Sala d’Art Jove programme with her project Zen Fascist, which includes this performance.
This performance is part of the programme PICA I FUIG! of the Sala d’Art Jove de la Generalitat de Catalunya, and is supported by MACBA under a collaboration agreement between the two institutions.
