FOR THE ITALIAN, TURKISH AND FRENCH VERSION
we focuse on hot topics, working out a difficult yet necessary modus vivendi with “the other”. We promote peaceful and respectful dialogue despite of language, cultural, social or geographical barriers.
W want to draw attention to the mechanisms of marginalization on its psychological, social and intercultural level. We want to develop skills to fight social exclusion in a novel and effective way which appeals to young people.
we believe that hot topics must be adressed at schools.
All This (and much more) may be achieved by Forum Theatre – a theatrical debate which forms a part of Augusto Boala’s socially engaged Theatre of The Oppressed.
The Theatre of the Oppressed, through the dispositive it implements (exercises, stage, the role of the Spect-Actors…) creates a propre environment to envourage individuals to act here and now, and to use spontaneity and creation to look for new alternatives to the situations considered as blocked, conflictual or difficult. It enables to stage difficult situations with the aim to transform them.
The interactive theatre is a tool to understand the world and its structures; a tool for change that enables to analyze approaches and situations, to imagine and prepare a transformative action in a principle of cooperation, unveiling conflicts and their stakes to make them evolve. For Augusto Boal, the basic principle is: « the liberation of the oppressed through the transformation of the spectatorinto a protagonist, from object to subject. ».
Forum Theatre is different from the traditional theatre – each spectacle is played a few times while audience goes up the stage in order to replace the actors and investigate alternative scenarios. it evokes objection against oppression, allows to analyse its causes and results, thus mobilizing search for realistic solutions.
