Theatre of the Oppressed NYC show featuring the Ali Forney Center

Theatre of the Oppressed partners with community members at local organizations to form theatre troupes — these troupes devise and perform plays based on their challenges confronting economic inequality, racism, and other social, health and human rights injustices. After each performance, actors and audiences engage in theatrical brainstorming – called Forum Theatre – with the aim of catalyzing creative change on the individual, community, and political levels.
