Originally, the technique was developed by Augusto Boal (1931-2009) as a political tool for social change (part of the Theatre of the Oppressed), but it has also been widely adapted for use in educational contexts. This technique breaks through the barrier between performers and audience, putting them on an equal footing. It enables participants to try out courses of action which could be applicable to their everyday lives.
Forum Theatre encourages people to find solutions, through debate that is action led. It can be used with people of all ages in community centres, workplaces, schools, with homeless people, disabled people or anywhere that people experience oppression.
