“I knew using theatre would bring the core difficulties to the fore and I even knew that everybody would be engaged; what I hadn’t expected with such tremendous depth was the level of emotional engagement and that this was the actual missing link in all our previous attempts to drive change. The amount of preparation and detail that Petra and her actors put into the programme was incredibly thorough. Even without the follow up, the Forum Theatre has made the single biggest impact on our people in my 20 years of working in HR for this company. I am blown away by the whole experience and cannot encourage you enough to use this method for your organisation’s biggest challenge” HR Director 
What is Forum Theatre? 
Forum Theatre is a shared experience in word and (e-)motion that stimulates debate, communication and a deeper understanding of different perspectives. It is an opportunity to speed up progression. By instructing their actors, you in-directly share your beliefs about how (not) to behave and hence experience the complexity of how to overcome real or perceived resistance to change. Trying out different options you – the audience - collectively build a new reality that is healthier for all. 
Forum Theatre is particularly powerful when organisations want to change attitudes, mindsets or cultures.
