Forum Theatre 101: An IntroductoryWorkshop

Forum Theatre is an interactive & participatory style of theatre designed to address social issues and inspire actionable change. In this intensive all-levels workshop led by award winning Forum Theatre artist Simon Malbogat, participants will learn how this social justice-based theatre style can be used to spark community dialogue and empower grassroots advocacy.
Artists will explore how Forum Theatre techniques of participation, intervention, and improvisation can help build tool kits for character development, devised creation, and audience engagement. Community organizers, social workers, and educators will learn how they can use Forum Theatre in their everyday practice to initiate vital conversations, engage in critical inquiry, and create social change in their communities.
