City Council Meeting San Francicso, Co-Directed by Erika Chong Shuch and Mallory Catlett
Z Space, San Francisco, 2015

A performance of empathy, democracy and power, created fresh in each city where it is presented, with local artists, activists, government officials and other citizens.

Mallory Catlett, Jim Findlay and Aaron Landsman are behind this. 

The personal stories of Calizo and the other four - tales of life, loss, activism and change in the Bay Area - anchored and amplified the ideas broached in the council scenes. An almost palpable sense of community seemed to fill the theater and, with it, that too often forgotten notion that, in a democracy, the government is us.
