CITY COUNCIL MEETING is a creation of writer Aaron Landsman, director Mallory Catlett and designer Jim Findlay. The team visited local city council meetings in San Antonio, Portland, New York and Tempe to create an engaging and participatory theatrical adventure. The competing agendas, alienating rules, tedium and temper create human theater at its best.
For 18 months, ASU Gammage worked with Landsman and Catlett to involve Tempe City Council, community leaders, Arizona residents, students and local artists in the creative process. Audience will become actors, actors observe and elected officials do both as CITY COUNCIL MEETING takes you to the intersection of life and theater and just might change your perception of both.
BEYOND has been presenting performances that you can see nowhere else in Arizona for nearly 20 years, and this year brings some unique artists you won’t want to miss.
