This workshop offers training in Theatre of the Oppressed, with a focus on understanding and creating Forum Theatre. The workshop will cover group facilitation techniques, structuring a Theatre of the Oppressed workshop, and devising Forum Theatre.
This is a practical workshop, the games and exercises in the workshop can be used with any group.
Forum Theatre is an interactive, problem-solving model. Performances are devised from collective experience around a specific social issue. The audience are invited to engage in the search for a new approach to the problem, by taking part in re-imagining the story.
The workshop is open to activists, people working in community contexts, and anyone interested in creating theatre for social change.
