Alyson’s Darwin Adventure film part 5

Alyson's Darwin Forum Theatre Workshop

Alyson facilitated a two day workshop on Friday and Saturday where she trained people from organisations around Darwin in Forum Theatre. She had a great turn out of 18 people who were all keen to take part and learn. Over the two days she showed them games for bonding and team building, which normally encouraged a lot of laughter! And then explored Forum Theatre, with the group creating their own scenes, and even having a go at Jokering themselves. When asked how these workshops will benefit them, some said:

“Collected many new ways to bond a group with numerous interesting games.”

“I have a further understanding of forum theatre. Personally it was beneficial for self confidence. I will definitely use this work”

“Very energising!!! I feel part of a community movement in its early stages!”
