Mobilization through Dramatization

As part of Toronto’s Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (TAVIS), Mixed Company Theatre will assist in the training of more police officers assigned to Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods.

Mixed Company Theatre will help train officers to improve community relations. Using interactive Forum Theatre, Mixed Company’s troupe presents worst-case scenarios that police officers may encounter in 31 and 12 Division, giving them a chance to rehearse for reality.

This initiative falls under Mixed Company Theatre’s Gang Violence Project, in partnership with The Toronto Police Services as a community mobilization, to bring together people in a neighbourhood – residents, businesses, community and government services, and the police - to improve their neighbourhoods.

Mixed Company Theatre produces innovative, socially relevant drama as a tool to educate, engage and empower for positive change.
