See how local democracy is enacted right here in Princeton, through this abridged production of the theater piece "City Council Meeting." Presented in several US cities, and now the subject of a forthcoming book, City Council Meeting is created with artists, activists, government officials, and now Princeton students. This performance was made collaboratively through the University’s first-year seminar "Is Politics a Performance?" (FRS 143) and based on student observations of city council meetings in Princeton, Trenton, and other cities this fall.
What to expect:
Audience members can either watch or take on a role, such as a council member, activist, or concerned citizen.
Meet the facilitator:
The session will be led by Aaron Landsman, lecturer in theater in the Lewis Center and co-creator of "City Council Meeting". This performance is sponsored by Princeton University’s ProCES, the Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship.
