Theatre for Living (Headlines Theatre)

Corporations in our Heads

Theatre without a net. No actors. No play. No script. Theatre for Living continues a 32-year legacy of innovation with a project about the corporate messages that live within our collective psyche.

Joked by: David Diamond
“Change our relationship to the messaging and we start to change our patterns of behaviour. Change our patterns of behaviour and sustain that change. .” David Diamond

This event takes 2.5 to 3 hours. Relax, if you need to slip out come back-that’s ok.

The messages from corporations tell us hundreds of times a day, in ways we may not notice anymore, how to relate to each other and to ourselves; what to buy, how to feel, how to perceive and the kind of person to aspire to be. Can we use the theatre to become aware of these messages, and to change our relationships to them, to live healthier and more sustainable lives with each other, with ourselves, and with the planet? This project hopes to be more than just an investigation – we have a desire for Corporations in our Heads to move into transformative action! How? By making each event relevant, at a grassroots level, to each unique community in which it happens and for the local organizers to use that momentum to move forward on local community issues. Each event is the community’s creation. We are touring a process in which the whole evening of theatre emerges from the audience.

Sounds heavy, but it’s a great deal of fun!

Admission is by donation. Participation is completely voluntary. No one will be dragged up on stage. Bring your experience and your curiosity!
