Last week schoolchildren in Torosghyugh cheered their peers with forum-theatre performances in a new and interesting format. Forum-theatre or the interactive theatre itself is both a theatrical genre and a tool revealing social issues meantime. The forum-theatre organized by “Women for Development” NGO aimed to find solutions to the issues raised by schoolchildren through using this method as a tool for conflict management.
The schoolchildren chose themes quite challenging today and directly dealing with their peers, a reason why the audience welcomed the performances so enthusiastically
Forum-theatre brought great joy to the audience making them express various opinions, suggestions, contradictory viewpoints and numerous means of conflict resolution. The most important thing here was that the forum-theatre served to its purpose giving pupils a chance to think and ponder over concrete topics.
