Theater of the Oppressed – Forum Theater



Are you interested in theatre?

The Miitti-project arranges a series of workshops at Lapinlahden Lähde.
The first workshop will take place on Friday 30th of September at 17.00-19.00.

In Forum Theatre, the participants will be inspired to explore different issues in
order to better deal with shared challenges in the society.
The workshops bring together social and individual dimensions, and create a forum for dialogue and a sense of community.

Theatre of the Opressed includes different forms of community activity. It uses theatre as a tool for transformation. Through interaction the participants are invited to share their thoughts and perspectives on the topic at hand.

Our meetings always start with easy warmups to break the ice.
Then we look at specific themes, that the group wants to process trough Forum Theatre-exercises.
The focus is on the themes, but we also train our expression. Our sessions ends with a reflection, a summary of the mutual work.
The workshop takes place in Wanha Labra; the entrance is through Kahvila Lähde, then turn left towards the auditorium and go up the stairs to the 2nd floor.

The workshops are free and open to everyone and no previous experience in theatre is needed.
Together we empower each other to make positive actions of change.

Warmly welcome!
