This depends on the size of the group, key learning objectives, the venue and a bundle of other variables however, here are some of the approaches we use. (Please note that if you’d like to understand how a learning event might work in practice for your team, just call us for a detailed proposal and costs)
Forum theatre empowers the audience to control the outcome of a scenario. They have buzzwords that can stop flow and instruct actors to say different things or act in different ways whilst the facilitator manages and guides the process, and most importantly, draws out key learning points along the way.
“Freeze” – to stop a situation in its track order which prompts groups discuss regarding the steps that should be taken next for the required outcome
“Rewind” – a tool to go back in time so things can be played out differently
“My Turn” – the more extroverted can pause proceedings to get up on stage and play out how they would deal with a situation to see where that takes things
It is often poor communication or assumptions that muddle situations and cause undesirable situations. Here the audience watches a scenario unravel over a series performances, initially not realising that things aren’t all that they seem. The group breaks into syndicates where they get to ask the actor – who is still in character – questions about the situation which in turn sheds a whole new light on things. This is a powerful approach for so many situations workplace scenarios where communication excellence is key.
