After impressive performances in New York City and elsewhere, City Council Meeting, a unique and inventive piece of theater, comes to Z Space. The creators of the show have taken a mundane piece of civic life -- a city council meeting -- and transformed it into a bold, chaotic and funny exploration of participatory democracy. And the best part is, you get to be part of the show! At each performance, audience members have the option to participate as councilors, speakers or supporters. Or, if you'd rather just watch, that's okay. They need bystanders, too. Democracy in action may not be pretty -- but just try to turn away. Learn More
