WHAT IS GUERRILLA THEATRE?
Guerrilla Theatre is an interactive style of impro-visational performance allowing audiences to become actual players in the show. The experience is by turns, aggressive, passive, intimate, distant, obvious and
covert. There are as many approaches as there are people to approach it. It is a broad, colorful and captivating canvas.
Although a passion and/or talent for improvi-sation will prove invaluable in guerrilla theatre, distant visuals, and covert opera-tions require little or no such calling. In fact, you can oft times recruit players from the audience to join your merry band on the spot – some more than others. As a lone wolf or member of a group you can create an exhilarating and compelling under-current of village life in Shake-speare’s England.

Guerrilla Theatre is not, for the most part, meant to gather and hold a crowd. It moves through a moving audience, pauses occasionally, circles the wagons and disappears into the crowd itself. It is a nebulous energy infusing itself into the moment, exhorting a chuckle, planting information, stirring thought or, on occasion, eliciting a response from the audience.
