Living Stages is a theatre organization built around the Theatre of the Oppressed model and creates a space for community reflection, empowerment, and collective action. Living Stages uses theater to train new leaders among those most impacted by systemic oppression by building anti-oppression tools and strategies on stage that can be used in wider life. Living Stages' Streets to Stages program builds theatre teams with participants who are low-income or experience homelessness, and bring the teams together for a Forum Theatre Convergence to discuss and debate political responses and collective action to current issues.
