What is theatre forum?
Theatre Forum is a type of interactive theatre used to address societal problems of all types.
During a theatre-forum performance the audience has the opportunity to react to problematic situations as they are being acted out, and is invited to join us on stage to intervene directly.
This happens within a framework specially designed to accompany those with no acting experience whatsoever. The actors on stage improvise based on the propositions made by the members of the audience, who are accompanied at all times by an empathetic guide while on stage.
Rather than a play to be passively consumed, this is a collaborative search for solutions to real problems: “Spectators” thus become “Specta(c)tors”, hence the name of our troupe. We look forward to finding solutions together!
