Theater and democracy share a birthplace, share fundamental tenants, and provide opportunities for the people to activate and understand their own power. But in a world where both the arts and democracy are increasingly under threat, what does it mean to be a “fundamentally democratic” theater? And how can the theater continue to encourage our best hopes for democracy? Join The Public’s Artistic Director Oskar Eustis, Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks, and more for an evening exploring the indivisible relationship between democracy and the theater.
Public Forum: Of, By & For The People is part of the Onassis Festival 2019: Democracy Is Coming, co-presented by Onassis USA and The Public Theater.
