Theatre of the Oppressed NYC presents The Housing Circus!

Members: $5; Guest: $10

 A forum play about the NYC Transitional Housing System Theatre of the Oppressed is an interactive, physical and playful tool used to investigate situations in which we are denied our basic rights, personally and collectively. Community actors, directors, playwrights, designers and producers create original, interactive plays inspired by real-life struggles for human rights.  These popular troupes tour throughout varied communities to engage in theatrical brainstorming or "forum theatre," in which the scenes ask a question of the audience, and the audience becomes involved as “spect-actors,” taking on the role of the protagonist to offer alternatives to the problems onstage.These interactive forums demand solidarity amongst diverse New Yorkers and creatively challenge systems of oppression.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
