Theatre for Living (formerly Headlines Theatre)
BC/Alberta Tour of Corporations in our Heads
4 Alberta Stops!
No actors. No play. No script. Theatre without a net.
Joked by: David Diamond
The messages from corporations tell us hundreds of times a day, in ways we may not notice anymore, how to relate to each other and to ourselves; what to buy, how to feel, how to perceive and the kind of person to aspire to be. Can we use the theatre to become aware of these messages, and to change our relationships to them, to live healthier and more sustainable lives with each other, with ourselves, and with the planet?
This project hopes to be more than just an investigation – we have a desire for Corporations in our Heads to move into transformative action! How? By making each event relevant, at a grassroots level, to each unique community in which it happens and for the local organizers to use that momentum to move forward on local community issues. Each event is the community’s creation. We are touring a process in which the whole evening of theatre emerges from the audience. (Although nobody is forced to participate…)
Sounds heavy, but it’s a great deal of fun!
This event takes 2.5 to 3 hours.
