Professor and Troupe ‘Deliver Democracy’
By Dateline Staff on November 3, 2020
Theatre professor Larry Bogad and his dancing mailboxes have been “Delivering Democracy” this election season, capturing media attention for their artistic activism.
The performers-as-mailboxes in the Delivering Democracy street show are getting out the vote in Pennsylvania, dancing to a reworked version of the pop tune “Please Mr. Postman” and handing out flyers with useful and accurate information about how and where to vote by mail, drop box or in person.
The New York-based Center for Artistic Activism is supporting Delivery Democracy and 10 other Unstoppable Voter Projects across the country — in an overall project the center says is aimed at celebrating voting rights and countering voter suppression in the 2020 U.S. election.
