Our Work

We deliver a wide range of one-off workshops which aim to raise awareness of issues most relevant to the partners we are working with. These workshops are often delivered in schools, colleges or as part of education training and staff development.

Our workshop style itself is accessible, engaging and interactive; using theatre as a tool to stimulate and challenge.

Our workshops include interactive debate and discussion and an interactive ‘forum theatre’ performance, inviting the audience to interact and positively impact the outcome for the characters in the performance

Forum theatre is a participatory approach that encourages democratic and co-operative forms of interaction. It enables participants in our project to investigate challenges and seek realistic and positive solutions. In our performance, participants explore triggers and warning signs and look for spaces for positive / preventative intervention. It was created by Augusto Boal, who the founders of OddArts trained with first hand.

It allows space for individual responses, where people ‘rehearse’ what to do in complex but common scenarios. The interaction promotes self-care & empowers people to make change.
