Our acclaimed intensive two-day course returns for 2018. Led by our Artistic Director Adrian Jackson, the weekend will focus on the skills of the joker (the facilitator in a Forum Theatre play) and the dramaturgy of Forum Theatre plays.

Over the course of the two days, this workshop will lead participants through sessions including:

  • Generating participation,
  • Stimulating nervous audiences
  • 'Difficult’ interventions 
  • Working with particular constituencies
  • How and when to end a Forum show

Participants will have the opportunity to joker a section of a ready-made Cardboard Citizens show or a ‘blank’ Forum Theatre piece generated by the group.
