Social Justice Themes
Environmental Justice is intertwined with Social Justice. We hesitated for a long time to say that we were making “Justice Theatre.” We simply make theatre that affects us deeply and personally, and as it turns out, that’s pretty consistently been about injustice and the movements toward justice.
We take a premise we are worried about (forced migration, totalitarianism, environmental collapse, hierarchy, immigration rights, human rights, patriarchy) and tell a highly visualized story built upon that premise. Our approach to the concepts is more subtle than Propaganda Theatre or Process Theatre (all respect due to those forms). We like to take you on a dream journey, with the hopes that you’ll keep thinking about it long after you go home. Changing deeply rooted social practices requires an imaginative leap. The ingenuity we need to create change is only achievable with imagination.
