Consent is an interactive forum theatre performance and workshop using professional actors and specialist facilitators to explore key issues around consent and sexual assault.
This particular performance focuses on what exactly is meant by consent and sexual assault, and the impact on the victim. The workshop involves interactive debate and discussion exercises and engagement with the actors in performance in order to search for solutions.
There is a post-performance discussion to explore many of the wider and complex themes and so called ‘grey areas’ around consent, sexual assault and rape.
