MXCO announces Introduction to Forum Theatre Workshop

Mixed Company Theatre Announces

The Introduction to Forum Theatre Workshop!

Explore masks and manipulations to comprehend human behaviour as Mixed Company Theatre hosts its annual Introduction to Forum Theatre Workshop in Toronto, June 15 – 18, 2009. Designed for educators, social workers, community leaders, theatre students and professionals, workshop participants will learn the methodology of forum theatre.

Through improvisation and theatrical games, experienced workshop facilitator and Mixed Company Theatre Co-founder, Simon Malbogat, guides the group through the stages of ice-breaking, bonding, trust, and sensory awareness. Working with image theatre and forum theatre, the participants will take part in open-discussion and find images that represent their own perceptions of the challenges in their lives, or the lives of the people around them.

Forum Theatre techniques are designed to investigate all sides of hard-to-talk-about issues. In sessions limited to 25 participants, this 4-day interactive workshop provides a fresh perspective on improvisation and new insight into character development for participants.

Widely popular nationally and internationally, the Introduction to Forum Theatre Workshop is followed by Joker Master Class, for individuals with prior Forum Theatre training who want to learn how to play and advance their Joker role. For further information or to register for the June 15 - 18 Introduction to Forum Theatre Workshop, reach us at or 416 515 8080. Participants must submit the $450 Registration Fee by June 5 2009. These popular summer workshops are always well-attended, so book your space early!

Mixed Company Theatre produces innovative, socially relevant drama as a tool to educate, engage and empower for positive change.
