TTO serves its mission through the development and performance of original, groundbreaking and interactive works by, for and about the LGBT community.
The core programmatic strategies of The Theater Offensive are:
- COLLECTIVE CREATION: TTO artists work with neighborhood residents (youth and adults alike) to create original performances based on their personal experiences and point of view. They showcase these creations to their peers with formal and informal feedback sessions.
- NEIGHBORHOOD PRODUCTION: Highly accomplished, extraordinary artists use input from community members to create a show, and then present it back in the neighborhood.
- CULTURAL EVENTS: Each of our neighborhoods is rich with its own regular or ongoing local and ethnic events. TTO collaborates with groups in the neighborhood to help create culturally competent OUT presence in those festivals, community occasions, and moments that need recognition
