Afternoon 06: ‘Closing the Gap’ – Forum and Legislative Theatre

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar

Theatre as a tool to creatively examine challenging topics and problems opens up new forms of public dialogue and participation, and allows those to speak, whose voices are never or hardly heard in democratic discourse. At best, theatre leads to greater political participation and the joint development of political initiatives, projects and laws.
Many people feel underrepresented in democratic systems and have lost faith in democratic engagement and participatory rights – these are symptoms of the current crisis of democracy. Social inequality has led people to feel excluded from the main political stages and to believe that their everyday struggles and challenges are irrelevant. This is where participatory forms of theatre, such as the ‘forum theatre’ and ‘legislative theatre’, come into play as they can narrow the gap between people affected by a certain societal problem, the general public and political decision-makers. In this seminar, participants will familiarise themselves with the theoretical foundations as well as the practicalities of these forms of theatre, and will apply these methods creatively and in experience-oriented learning.
