Theatre is used as a catalyst for self-awareness and learning in business.
Bringing business to life, theatre is at work to develop and enhance culture and skills. Scripted scenarios, forum theatre plays and skills practice techniques are used with leaders and managers through to frontline sales and service teams. We also support cultural change in areas like brand engagement and workforce diversity.
Workshops featuring forum theatre, scripted scenarios or case-studies are developed in partnership with clients and tailored to address specific objectives. Sessions can be created to work independently or delivered as part of an existing programme or event. Participants interact directly with the methods used; together exploring the issues and discovering new approaches to common challenges.
In forum theatre, actors illustrate a short play or scenario which raises issues and stimulates discussion. Delegates also engage directly with the characters to explore their behaviours and understand what motivates them. At higher levels of interaction the group can change the scenario by directing the actors, who adapt the group's ideas and illustrate the result. Used with ten participants up to several hundred delegates, this process allows groups to observe, reflect with perspective, share views and experiment by applying their ideas in a live and safe environment.
Scripted scenarios and forum theatre have been used by corporate clients in Ireland and the UK in sectors like financial services, hospitality, health, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, infrastructure, utilities, business consulting and higher education.
Sessions range from short, intensive workshops that are delivered over a few hours to complete learning journeys that run over one or two-days, or as part of your ongoing programme.
