FORUM THEATER WITH CHIARA DIGRANDI

Una reflexión activa sobre la violencia machista.

In this workshop we will explore different processes of creating Forum Theater to later represent them in a session open to the public. Among those registered (registration form below), 12 people will be selected to work in the workshop. The rest, the public, will have the option to participate and enjoy the forum by becoming spectators, in the exhibition open to the public that will be held on Saturday, September 5,  from 18:30 to 20:00.


The creation of the pieces that will be shown is done collectively and horizontally, valuing the different points of view and experiences of the participants.
 

The Forum Theater represents a problem or conflict that affects a community. In this case, work will be done on the issue of sexist violence.
 

During the open session, the audience of the representation will have the opportunity to express their ideas and experiences regarding the conflict to later formulate proposals that allow it to be transformed. Spectators will be given the opportunity to transform into spectators, going on to exchange with the characters of the play to show acting their proposals for change. The theater turns the audience into actors and the citizens into critical artists with the capacity to transform their reality.
