Let's introduce you to Shake Theatre!
Directed by Helene and Marion, two french professionals in the theatre of the oppressed, their creations offer experiences of Forum Theatre in Australia.
Forum Theatre is a technique from The Theatre of the Oppressed, a form theorised by Augusto Boal which places the audience as ‘active spectators’ and provides a chance for each member to be heard.
How does it work?
You write us testimonials about a specific theme
We rewrite them as theatre scenes
We recruit actors fitting the different characters and create a show
We perform these scenes based on your true experiences
You have time to give your opinion and propose different reactions to change the end of the scene
Shake Theatre will offer you shows like no other: they are made for you, with you and you can change the story’s end. Shake Theatre will listen to your past experiences and adapt them to all types of audience – including schools, charity and corporate organisations; teenagers, adults and a mixture of both!
We can even do it in French if you wish to!
Shake theatre is a wonderful educational tool which can afford people the opportunities to express themselves freely. It is not a debate, there is no right or wrong but it is a safe "bubble" to tackle oppressive societal issues such as racism, sexism, violence or economic inequality.
So don’t be shy! Come with us and together let’s unlock the dialogue and be a part of the Drama!
