Lachlan McDonald's insight:

Hi Class,

 

Please have a look at this Youtube clip on Interactive Theatre (Playback Theatre).

I would like you to reflect on what you have learnt about this in this video by responding to the below questions in the comments box.

 

1) Why is the global community using Interactive Theatre?

 

2) How would you use Interactive Theatre to address Australian social issues (same sex marriage, asylum seekers, bullying)?

The Freedom Bus, an initiative of Jenin's Freedom Theatre, used interactive theatre and cultural activism to bear witness, raise awareness and build alliances throughout occupied Palestine and beyond. From September 23-October 1 2012, Palestinians and allies from around the world took part in a 9-day solidarity ride through 11 communities in the West Bank of occupied Palestine.
Lachlan McDonald's insight:

Hi Class,

Interactive Theatre is a contemporary form of performance theatre which is typically used to communicate social issues and cultural activism at a street level. As the name suggests the theatre style is interactive meaning it incorporates the audience into the performance. Audience members are pro-actively asked to partake, share their stories and voice their ideas. The above scoop shows a perfect example of interactive theatre in motion. In this scoop you can see Jenin's Freedom Theatre protesting against the occupation of Palestine by using interactive theatre to raise awareness, build alliances and communicate their points of view. Please take time to look through the scoop. The photo's should be your main focus as they demonstrate the core function of theatrical theatre. Observe the variety of theatrical tools being utilised such as artwork and music.
