“Movie Forum” is a combination of audience development and forum theatre methodology of Augusto Boal to examine personal blockade that stops people to feel self confident and strong enough to fight the oppressive world around them

Aim: 

The main aim of “Movie Forum” is to speak out loud the notions and values important for active citizenship, solidarity and inclusion in international forum. Educative situation is a compilation of audience developement and active participation throuh Forum Theatre and applied drama methodology.

Methodology: 

 “Movie Forum” concept is based on drama and applied theatre, especially on Forum theatre methodology. Forum theatre which is rooted in the “Theatre of the oppressed” by Augusto Boal, focus on the problem of oppression in political and individual sense. My proposition of “Movie Forum” is to use Forum Theatre games and exercises to examine the interpersonal relations and personal blockade that stops people to feel self confident and strong enough to fight the oppressive world around them."Have the courage to be happy!” said Augusto Boal. 

Step by step process: 

In brief the tool I propose to explore is having 5 main parts. 
During a given time (90-120min) of workshops we could realise first 3 parts.Part 4-5 would be announced as a proposition of a continuation in the futur.1. We will watch an extract (20-30min) from a movie talking about a subject of solidarity and inclusion;2. Through different drama and Forum Theatre games and exercises we will develop the most important subject, which evoked in a group discussion after watching the movie;3. We will develop the subject through drama improvisations,as a continuation:4. Drama improvisations would lead us to the scenario of a film;We will make a very short film illustrating our (group) vision of the subject discussed before; 5. We will show the film to the others, use it in our future workshops and share it via internet with other people interested. What is interesting is that showing our effect- short movie made by participants, could be also a starting point to another “Movie Forum” workshops with other groups!

Materials and resources: 

multimedia: an extract from a movie (I haven't chosen yet, probably it would be: "Ida" M. Pawlikowski or "Papusza" K.Krauze)a projector, a computer50 x a4 paperpost-itflipchartpencils, highligters 

Outcomes: 

- raised awarness of social inclusion and solidarity- active perspective developed - a range of situations and behaviores practised 

Evaluation: 

This tool is in a process of developement, we haven't done any evaluation yet. I hope Tool Fair XI could be a good occation to get international feedback.

Notes for further use: 

As I mentioned before Part 4-5 is recommended as a continuation in the futur. 4. To make a very short film illustrating our (group) vision of the subject discussed before; 5. To show the film to the others, use it in our future workshops and share it via internet with other people interested. What is interesting is that showing our effect- short movie made by participants, could be also a starting point to another “Movie Forum” workshops with other groups!
