My Kind of Theatre = Performed Participatory Democracy
City Council Meeting is performed participatory democracy -- part play, part social sculpture, part town meeting. Performers and viewers will be the Mayor and Council members, city secretary, citizens and, of course, the misfits like me who hang out at city council meetings and always have something to say. Come early and you might end up in the Mayor's chair.
Go here for more about this project from the fascinating Aaron Landsman (Elevator Repair Service's Gatz, 13P's American Treasure).
