Once again, Acting Now is holding an Intensive Forum Theatre Workshop designed for artists and creatives from all sectors, for anyone who is going to benefit from a deep insight into applied drama techniques.

Participants will be equipped with solid knowledge of the Forum Theatre technique and participatory theatre practices. In addition, they will have the chance to explore means of devising dramatic content and narratives and learn tips in facilitating creative programs for education purposes.

WHAT IS FORUM THEATRE

Part of the ‘Theatre of the Oppressed’ and created by Brazilian theatre director Augusto Boal, Forum Theatre is an applied drama technique and participatory theatre practice created to empower audience individuals to determine social change. Lead by an oppressive political and social background, Boal’s efforts consisted in establishing a dialog between audience and stage with the aim of exploring the real needs and issues of his community. The theatrical act by itself is a conscious intervention, a rehearsal for social action based on a collective analysis of shared problems of oppression.

THE WORKSHOP

Suitable for all ages and abilities, this introductory workshop is designed to strengthen community activation and trust-building through interactive exercises developed from the fundamentals of creating Forum Theatre images. In this workshop, participants will hone their storytelling and image building techniques and explore how different styles of presenting multiple perspectives can aid positive problem solving.

FOR ANYONE

This experience is for anyone! Actors and non-actors that are interested in using theatre as a tool for communication, debate and social change within their communities and a MUST for theatre practitioners, social activists, teachers, community workers, charity representatives and youth workers.
