Description: “What If We Saw Each Other Differently” is a forum theatre activity, generating an interactive debate on diversity and social inclusion, aimed at giving voice to people experiencing racism and discrimination. It provides an open space for dialogue on the lived experience of each individual, in order to better understand diversity in our society. Forum theatre is the most often used and most impressive technique of the Théâtre de l’Opprimé. It is a playful tool for raising awareness and for collective reflection, making it possible to take on complex issues and to actively seek out solutions. The activity begins with the presentation of several scenes dealing with conflict situations. Then, as a second step, it is up to the public to take hold of the story. The spectators who wish to do so can intervene on stage, replace an existing character or create a new one, in order to move the action forward in a direction that seems fairer to them. Thanks to the fiction of the theatre, everyone is free to embody the person of their choice, to confront a situation, and to see what the outcome would be if actions and reactions were different. Fire up your imagination; in forum theatre, everything is possible!
