Forum Theatre Performance + Creation Workshop

Event Details

In this all-levels workshop, we will explore how Forum Theatre techniques of participation, intervention, and improvisation can help performers, educators and community leaders build tool kits for character development, conflict resolution, and catalyzing change in their own circles.

This workshop, which acquaints participants with Augusto Boal’s pedagogy and applied theatre techniques, is a great opportunity for artists who are looking to hone their performance creation skills as well as for educators, social workers and health professionals, and any and all practitioners of community engagement.

Through learning and practicing Forum Theatre under the guidance of Simon Malbogat, participants in this workshop will receive the skills to become better facilitators, conflict resolution mediators, artists, community leaders, and more socially-aware educators.
