Cardboard Citizens Professional Theatre of the Oppressed Training Courses – Joker Masterclass, London


Price: £100.00 to £324.00



Cardboard Citizens is renowned as being one of the world’s leading Forum Theatre companies.

The courses take place in London and are led by Adrian Jackson, Augusto Boal’s translator and the founder of Cardboard Citizens. Since its creation in 1991, the company has been applying Theatre of the Oppressed techniques in homeless hostels, prisons, community centres, schools and theatres – using Boal’s techniques to engage and inspire the most marginalised.

Saturday 10 November – Sunday 11 November 2018
Our acclaimed intensive two-day course returns for 2018. Led by our Artistic Director Adrian Jackson, the weekend will focus on the skills of the joker (the facilitator in a Forum Theatre play) and the dramaturgy of Forum Theatre plays. Over the course of the two days, this workshop will lead participants through sessions including:

• Generating participation
• Stimulating nervous audiences
• ‘Difficult’ interventions
• Working with particular constituencies
• How and when to end a Forum show

Participants will have the opportunity to joker a section of a ready-made Cardboard Citizens show or a ‘blank’ Forum Theatre piece generated by the group.

If you have any questions, please email or call the Cardboard Citizens office on 020 7377 8948.
