A FREE Theatre of the Oppressed NYC Workshop and Community Breakout Session

Sat., Nov. 21 from 2-4 p.m., 66 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and The Bowery

As New York City arts organizations are losing space in a city with an ever-expanding real estate market, La MaMa is hoping tom move against the current. The Downstairs, La MaMa's newest venue, will explore how audiences and artists of the next generation interact and engage with art. A 6,500-square-foot multi-purpose facility with a classroom, exhibition area, and large interdisciplinary space, The Downstairs is the epicenter of all our artistic, community, and education programs and a platform to address our community's needs through art.

To understand what a creative community space could look like, La MaMa invites community leaders and artists to East Village Stories, a creative workshop facilitated by Theatre of the Oppressed. Inspired by Augusto Boal and Paulo Freire's work, worshop activities will involve interactive, physical, and playful exercises that will help us articulate our collective and individualized needs as a community.

The East Village and Lower East Side have a rich history of diverse residents, artists, and activists fighting for their right to live, work, and create. You are a part of this tradition. Tell your East Village story! Let's begin the conversation.

All East Village/LES community members welcome, ages 10-100. No theater experience necessary.
