Now in its third year, the Police Teen Theater Project asks cops and teens from South Brooklyn to come together and practice improv theater techniques from Brazil. These improv games, called Theater of the Oppressed, are used as a way to help participants become aware of how society has programmed us to behave on both sides of the power dynamic. This results in an often riotous cacophony of silliness and freedom where cops and teens can interact in unexpected ways. After three months of weekly classes focusing on humor, improv and communication, the Police Teen Theater Project will perform for the community. Through the process, the cops learn a little about the teens, the teens see the silly side of cops and everyone has a chance to get their Marlon Brando on.
