CONTENTS: Forum theatre is a social theatre method for the oppressed that is inclusive and promotes dialogue between the people. After seeing a previously agreed upon play, we’re able to arrange different topics to discuss with the students at the forum theatre workshop. Together we’ll find solutions to the issues and questions that the play has raised. The workshop consists of inclusive activities such as theatrical games and other forum theatre exercises. Another option is to organise the workshop as an independent event. In this instance, through the forum theatre model, we’re able to discuss relevant social topics and issues (e.g. violence, addition etc.) that are important to that particular group.
Workshop can be used in correlation with curriculum topics such as: lifelong learning and career planning, environment and sustainable growth, citizens’ initiative and industry, cultural identity, age of information, health and safety, values and morals.
