Welcome To Our Space? A Town Hall on Audience Interactions

Join Aurora Theatre Company in partnership with Shotgun Players, Theatre Bay Area, Z Space, and Calling Up Justice for a town hall style conversation on how theaters and theatergoers can create a more welcoming and inclusive theatre-going culture in the Bay Area. Panelists Claudia Alick, Leigh Rondon-Davis, and Sean San José will discuss the ways in which both organizations and patrons contribute to the performance around the performance. How and why are some theatregoers made to feel unwelcome in theatre lobbies and even in their seats? Why are these moments of ableism, racism, gender discrimination, or age discrimination so common? What is a microaggression? Do microaggressions really happen in liberal Berkeley? (Spoiler alert: Yes, they do!) How can we all work together to help decrease the incidence of oppressive behaviors that take place in public spaces? Be a part of the conversation, the culture shift, and the positive change we want in Bay Area theatre.
