Forum Theatre  is an  interactive and participatory style of theatre designed to address social issues and inspire actionable change.

This four-part workshop, led by award winning Forum Theatre artist Simon Malbogat and Theatre of the Oppressed facilitator Swetha Ranganathan, will teach participants how to use theatre games and exercises to create Forum Theatre with and for various community groups.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the history and working principles of Forum Theatre
  • Participate in the step-by-step process of creating a Forum Theatre scene virtually with community members
  • Learn key games and exercises (virtual formats) which facilitate community sharing, conflict analysis, and creation
  • Have an overview of performance facilitation (joking)
  • Receive a guide/manual for games and exercises (with virtual format alternatives)

While the objectives and learning are directed towards virtual community engagement; key principles and techniques can also be applied to in-person delivery.

This workshop will help community organizers, social workers, and educators discover how including Forum Theatre principles and activities in their everyday practice can initiate vital conversation, engage in critical inquiry, and create social change in their communities.

These workshop sessions will take place completely over Zoom.
