Digest #223

Dear reader,

Theatre of the Oppressed presents (NYC)

Legislative Theatre brings citizens, legislators and policymakers together into creative dialogue about the policies and laws that affect communities facing oppression.

At TONYC’s annual Legislative Theatre Festival, you will watch original plays based on the actors’ lived experiences of discrimination in New York City. You will act onstage alongside the actors to offer alternative responses to these systemic problems on an individual, institutional, or policy level. And you will submit ideas to representatives from City Council, the Mayor’s Office and the federal government, and then vote to carry these ideas forward to their respective chambers.
To collaborate or participate:
Rebecca Kelly Golfman, Creative Advocacy Coordinator
