To be a resistant body is to be, above all, a body bursting with love. In Cris Lyra's 'Breakwater', this body is, in fact, a collective of women's bodies that meet and touch, caring for each other and nurturing a way of life. At a New Year’s Eve party, the act of “being together” becomes resistance from the gestures, expressions, caresses, voice tones, music rhythms. You have to be alert, strong, and resolute.
