Theatre of the Oppressed presents: Apartment Complex

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 7:00pm

Theatre of the Oppressed NYC and Housing Works present Apartment Complex, a forum play about the challenges faced by New Yorkers trying to access and hold on to safe and affordable housing. Created and performed by the Housing Works Theatre Troupe, based on the real-life experiences of the actors.

TONYC was founded in 2011 by Katy Rubin, who trained with Augusto Boal in Rio, in 2008. After returning to New York and discovering a lack of effective "popular theatre" – interactive theatre created by communities facing oppression – Rubin helped form the Jan Hus Homeless Theatre Troupe, which is now called Concrete Justice (TONYC’s flagship troupe).

Since 2011, TONYC has grown rapidly in response to a real need from communities in crisis for social change. Our team of Jokers and Jokers-in-Training – the people who help facilitate workshops and performances – now collaborate with TONYC’s troupes to create more than 60 public performances a year.
