Legislative Theatre Workshop
St Augsberg College
I conducted a three-day Legislative Theatre workshop, which drew heavily on the basic techniques of Forum Theatre and on the most pressing problems that local Minnesotan residents have identified in their communities.
Using both traditional and new techniques, I lead participants to develop Forum scenes that were “performed” in front of Minneapolis City Council members.
The goal was to initiate at least one piece of legislation that works against oppression in the daily lives of citizens of Minnesota.
