Forum theatre is a socially engaged theatre form that creates unique spaces for collective dialogue, reflection, and “rehearsal for life”.  This workshop – through games, exercises, and techniques – will focus on finding ways to portray oppressive systems that contribute to local and global justice issues. We will explore how we can avoid good-vs-evil and other forms of moral dualism in the creation of Forum theatre scenes, while striving for a more nuanced understanding of global justice issues; their causes and potential solutions.

Participants will gain experience with additional Theatre of the oppressed (TO) techniques, create original Forum theatre scenes, and discuss the role of the joker (facilitator) figure in TO. Those who have a particular interest in playing the joker will have opportunities to learn the role. The workshops will conclude with a public performance, providing an opportunity for wider public engagement.


The deep dive masterclass  is ideal for people working on systemic change, activists, actors and Theatre of the Oppressed practitioners. This workshop is open to all and no prior theatre experience is necessary to participate. The number of places available is limited and pre-registration is required
