Forum Theatre

What is Forum Theatre?

Forum theatre uses theatre techniques to make learning in a business context interactive, fun, and powerful. The approach involves creating bespoke theatre scenes in collaboration with the client, which are relevant to the organization and its challenges. Participants watch the scene and then engage in a conversation about it before replaying the scene and directing it to achieve a better outcome. This approach is called forum theatre and encourages participants to focus on emotional intelligence and behaviours rather than company processes. It is interactive, hands-on, and sometimes may include an element of role play. Forum theatre can be used to explore emotional or sensitive issues in a safe environment and test new ideas or ways of working.
