One of the major goals from our 2017 Strategic Plan was to form a Rapid Response Theatre Troupe — a troupe that could receive a call, and gather quickly to provide smart, savvy monologues and scenes to a rally, a demonstration, a school walkout, you name it. Our Rapid Response troupe is built of young people and adults who are directly impacted by the issues they work on, such as housing and economic justice, the criminal justice system, and the school-to-prison pipeline.
Well, we’d like to introduce YOU to Rapid Response. They’ve been traveling throughout the city to work with campaigns (including #CLOSErikers, #FairFares, and #RaisetheAge) and other nonprofits to provide an engaging street-theatre style of performance, and they’re ready to show you their stuff. Join us for a delicious breakfast, meet our Rapid Response actors, participate in a short model of a “rapid forum” performance, and learn how the Rapid Response troupe and TONYC's Creative Advocacy delegates can support your organizations, movements and campaigns!
