In this interview, Garcés talks about his take on how his particular performance-related work makes a political intervention in the public sphere. This interview complements Garcés's teach in ' Community Theater: A Conversation about Methodologies,' presented in this 10-day event, which brought together activism, scholarship, and art around the themes of legacies, memories, struggles, and frontiers of citizenship.
