Semi-autobiographical and semi-fictional, Emergence investigates how we can become our own heroes and change the world. Inspired by Russian guerilla activist group Pussy Riot and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, a group of women endeavor to address systems of oppression through powerful musical demonstrations and movement.
