And What Would You Do?

Forum theater performance

for 10 to 14-year-old students

 

The performance deals with some of the most common forms of violence in schools. The masks of the actors and the lack of words allow viewers to identify types, rather than individual characters . This allows each of them to invest the characters with memories from  their own life experience and thus to have their own share in the making of the story. When children experience the emotions of the oppressed, they will be motivated to look for a way to ease his/her situation. Their participation will create other scenes showing different perspectives and possible solutions to the conflict prior to the act of violence. 

Forum theater is a theatrical game in which the problem is shown in an unsolved  form. The audience, which is also a participant in the show, is invited to offer and present a  solution. The facilitator invites the viewers to try and create a positive change in the situation as they  get into the role of the oppressed and change his/her behaviour the way they see fit. This interactive theater form has not only rational, but also an emotional impact on the participating audience.

 Forum theater gives its audience  the rare chance to try out in a safe environment different behaviors in potential problem situations.
