About us

Theatre of the Oppressed NYC (TONYC) partners with communities facing discrimination to inspire transformative action through theatre.

Through ongoing collaborations with social service organizations, advocacy groups and city agencies, TONYC creates theatre troupes with community members who face pressing social, economic, health, and human rights issues. The troupes create and perform plays based on real-life struggles, engaging diverse audiences in theatrical brainstorming - or ‘Forum Theatre’ - to creatively challenge systems of oppression. TONYC audiences also include elected officials and policy-makers, leading to policy proposals generated through a creative, community-based process, or ‘Legislative Theatre.’
