Description:
This training, for activists, artists, social service professionals, students and engaged citizens, journeys through the process of building and performing a Forum Theatre play from start to finish. This process includes playing games from the arsenal of Theatre of the Oppressed; telling and choosing stories of oppression; using Aesthetics of the Oppressed (clean trash sculpture, etc) to explore the story and the issues; and applying rehearsal games. We will examine the theory and politics of the work while staying firmly rooted in practice.  Participants have the opportunity to practice jokering a Forum play and teaching back the games to the group, and receive constructive feedback from the group.  We will take time to address a variety of questions that arise when working with different communities. At the conclusion of the training, we'll share original Forum plays with friends and colleagues.
