Actors of all abilities wanted for forum theatre project in Canberra

Date postedby Nican: 30 July 2013

Nican is seeking actors with and without disability to deliver accessibility and inclusion training to Canberra businesses and work places. 
Forum Theatre is interactive, problem-solving theatre that can be used to educate and raise awareness of disability rights and accessible communities. 
In Forum Theatre, a group of actors with lived experience of a social issue create a very short play about that issue, with an ending that is clearly undesirable. 
They perform the piece twice and the audience are invited to call “stop!”, come onto the stage and replace one of the actors to try and achieve a better outcome. It is a way for audience members to practice inclusive ways of working and to experience the barriers and attitudes that others face. 
Meeting for 3 hours every week, this FREE course will run until the end of 2013 ... visit the Nican website for details about the course and how to apply.
  • Applications close 16th August 2013
Nican is information on recreation, tourism, sport and the arts for people with disAbilities and supports an Australian society where any recreational opportunity values diversity, supports freedom and choice and strengthens inclusive communities (Nican website)
