Climate Justice Theatre

At the West Coast Convergence for Climate Justice and Action, I was part of a group who created and performed an original forum theatre piece about Climate Justice. Our group was co-facilitated by Rosa Gonzalez (headRush), & Levana Saxon (Youth in Focus). Rosa skillfully jokered the forum theatre process as audience members paused the action, and intervened to create more just solutions to the problems posed in the drama.

The forum piece was similar to the one I did with Levana and Rosa in May 2008 at the Fruitvale Plaza.

Another example of a forum theatre piece I did recently was Participatory Theatre in Auroville, India.

"The climate is changing, and so are we."
