DiverseWorks and the UH Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts are pleased to announce Aaron Landsman’s City Council Meeting. Presented over the course of three nights, in three different locations, City Council Meeting is a participatory theater event about empathy, democracy and power. Combining transcripts from government meetings in several cities, as well as original writing and a surprise ending, City Council Meeting reveals the city we make each night by performing it. This work is created anew in each city where it is presented, with the help of local actors, activists, politicians, and other citizens. The presentation in Houston over the final weekend leading up to Election Day marks the first stop in City Council Meeting’s four-city premiere, to be followed by Tempe, AZ, New York, NY, and San Francisco, CA.
