Our scenario based Lighting Forum Theatre Presentations give you the opportunity to choose from a range of issues while maintaining the engaging, participatory style of a Forum Theatre show.
In these presentations, a story representing an issue is performed (the first act) by actors. Students are then invited onto the stage by a trained facilitator to enact “an intervention” where they can either replace a character or suggest a change to the story for the better. A trained Forum Theatre facilitator (the Joker) prepares and encourages participants to replace the actors on the stage and to change the story in a constructive way.
Students get most of the presentation time to replace characters and act out their own solutions – it is a high-impact and highly engaging platform for dialogue and discussion in a very safe and collaborative environment.
This year we are offering completely customizable Lightning Forum Presentations, tailored to meet your goals and learning objectives.
