What’s new? Forum theatre updates 2020!

Hi everyone,

First of all, we hope all is fine with you, given these difficult circumstances. We're with you in spirit and wish to extend our best wishes and encouragement to our community in these trying times.

Here's the latest on what has been going on with us, the Atwater Library Forum Theatre group!

Since April 2019, we have been fine-tuning our Man Down project and have performed it for a second time at Vanier College and John-Abbott College for International Men's Day in November 2019. The responses have been very positive and the conversations inspiring.

Problems and solutions brainstormed by the audience, Nov. 19th 2019


Although we've had two performances canceled for this spring due to the COVID-19 Pandemic (at Marionapolis College in Montreal and Champlain College in St-Lambert) we are brainstorming new ways of providing online forum theatre workshops to students and teachers. We really believe forum theatre is a unique platform for students to discuss hard topics in a fun and fictional setting.

In other news, we are exploring a new forum script surrounding neurodivergence and the intersection of rape culture and disability. Stay tuned for more news on that!
