Report on a Past Event



Fifteen Equity members from all over the South-West (Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset and Devon) enjoyed an excellent forum theatre workshop at Dartington's Studio 31 on 23rd January, run by Sandy Akerman, one of the country's foremost forum theatre practitioners and her son Dan Pryce. The day was divided into warm-ups, interpretations of a given script and the turning of that script into a performance piece. Some of those attending had already done forum before but all agreed that the workshop was of the highest standard and everyone went away not just educated but with the knowledge that they too can now consider using forum theatre as a professional practice. Our thanks must go to Sandy and Dan for a wonderful workshop!  Hopefully a follow-up workshop will take place looking at performance practice associated with forum.
