TRG Forum Theatre transforms passive spectators into active participants
Through our powerful forum theatre interactive approach and intensive programs, teenagers are empowered to work together, support each other and practice responses to current, everyday issues such as peer pressure, social isolation, bullying, relationship violence, alcohol and substance abuse. The program is devised and evaluated with experts in education, youth safety and harm prevention and more recently, has been extended to incorporate interactive online crime prevention content for teenagers and at-risk youth.
The Theatrical Response Group uses a best practice approach with lessons supported with a complimentary teacher resource kit and curriculum links to reinforce the students’ learning and understanding of the issues and focus topic.
Theatrical Response Group performances directly link to Health and Physical Education Curriculum for personal, social and community health. Curriculum links include, but are not limited to:
- Skills to deal with challenging or unsafe situations, where risk is encouraged by others.
- Strategies to make informed choices to promote health, safety and wellbeing.
- Investigating reasons why young people choose to use or not use drugs.
- Skills and strategies to promote respectful relationships.
