About Legislative Theatre
We are all actors: being a citizen is not living in society,
it is changing it.
-Augusto Boal, 2009
Legislative Theatre brings citizens, legislators and policymakers together into creative dialogue about the policies and laws that affect communities. Each year, Theatre of the Oppressed NYC produces a Legislative Theatre Festival. Forum Theatre Troupes prepare and perform scenes, and the interactive forum focuses discussion on policy changes, the opportunity for the collected audience to submit their ideas to legislators, and an audience vote on legislative proposals.
