Throughout this intensive weeklong course, participants will investigate the theory and practice of Forum Theatre. A number of simple games and exercises centred on trust, confidence and group integration will be introduced enabling participants to lead workshop sessions within their own group or communities.
Participants will look at how to devise a Forum Theatre piece and how to conduct a public Forum session. The week will culminate with a performance of the Forum Theatre pieces devised by the group to an invited audience of friends. Reference will also be made to Legislative Theatre practice. Legislative Theatre is a method in which Forum Theatre is used as a basis for the formulation of policy, rules or legislation, in any body from school to government.
