The Forum Project’s Performance Troupe

ABOUT THE TROUPE

The Forum Project’s Performance Troupe is a team of theatre artists, advocates and educators using Theatre of the Oppressed’s Forum Theatre to engage communities in dialogue around a myriad of important social topics, including bullying, race, sexual harassment, body image, sexual orientation and more.

Forum Theatre is a performance where audience members take the stage to change the action of the play and to try to address the issues of oppression presented. Performances erupt into dialogue as audience members build their understanding around an issue through critical reflection and by taking action on stage. The resulting performance is dynamic, fast-paced, educational, inspiring and a lot of fun!

Invite the Performance Troupe to your community or classroom!

The Forum Project’s Performance Troupe is perfect for engaging your class, community group or organization members in dialogue about important issues. Using interactive Forum theatre, the Troupe entertains and educates by using theatre to pose questions and asking audience members to try out their ideas on stage. The resulting discussion is energetic, transformative, inspiring and lots of fun! Watch this video to see Forum Theatre in action.

We’re excited to visit your organization, classroom or community. The Performance Troupe has a number of scene available to present that encompass a myriad of important social topics. We also can work with a group to develop a scene tailored to engage in dialogue around a particular set of issues.
