Yes? Or, no? Right now that’s the only question that matters. Or so that’s what everyone would have you believe. But what if there is another question to be asked, besides who gets to rule us? What if we asked to rule ourselves?

Sortition will explore freedom, power and control through direct action in a live audience debate. Part manifesto and part forum-theatre, together we’ll learn how to take more control over the decisions that shape our lives.

Sortition is an opportunity to imagine a freedom together. Sortition is an experiment in radical democracy. Sortition is a political action for now.
