5-Days Workshop on Interactive Theatre for Influencing

HOW WILL THE TRAINING BE USEFUL?

In many developing countries, theatre is used as a tool for engaging communities to create awareness on issues and is an easily understood and accepted communication tool. Theatre builds on existing traditions of communication and entertainment such as storytelling, puppetry, folk songs, and dance. It is seen as an effective medium used to educate and empower many communities; listening to their concerns, and then encouraging them to be included in solving their own problems. This workshop aims to prepare participants on theatrical skills and techniques to facilitate them in creating awareness of social issues through theatre in their respective communities. The participants will be able to explore the dynamics and utilization of modern theatre as a communication tool to address social issues in their respective areas. This seven-day residential training workshop will enable participants to explore the essentials of theatre. Participants will be able to explore the art of creating stories, improvisation with groups and skills to develop issue-based content for interactive
theatre performances.
