Forum-theater is an innovative method of work aimed at solving social problems through theatrical performances. The Youth Forum-Theater of the Fund "Sukhumi" has been working since 2009 and conducts performances on topical issues (conflicts, violence) in 4 regions of Western Georgia (Imereti, Samegrelo, Guria, Adjara).
The Shadow Theater visited a private kindergarten in Kutaisi and held two performances for children of different groups. The kids watched the performance “turnip” with interest. It is a fairy tale set for them.
Children were actively involved in the process of “pulling” turnips. They really liked the performance, and the director of the kindergarten thanked the young actors and the editor for the interesting performance.
Forum-theater performances were held in Kutaisi and Tskaltubo - 9 performances were shown. Particularly interesting and emotional for the audience was a show on the topic of migration, which caused an active discussion. Also important was the discussion of the scene of the mother and child, where the emphasis was made on the mother who sacrificed herself for the sake of the children.
“These performances should be also presented to teenagers, young people, and the older generation. People will see their problems and start thinking how to solve the situation, how to find a way out. This will be the beginning of creation of a non-violent society, - said one of the spectators.
This is the mission of the forum theater.
The project is implemented with the support of the organization Brot
für die Welt – Evangelischer Entwicklunsdienst (Germany)
