Drama Box - shh... a date with the community

Over two weekends in September 2010, Drama Box presented shh... censorship: a forum theatre performance and shh... voices of the community: an exhibition. The forum theatre performance had intended to focus on the topic of censorship, "What is censorship? Who is censoring? Who is being censored?" 

The forum theatre event was not allowed to be presented as it had intended, resulting in a different performance at the last minute. Details of the exchange between MDA and Drama Box on Drama Box's blog here. More images of the event here.
