What is Forum Theatre?

Forum Theatre originated from "Theatre of the Oppressed" established by Brazilian theatre master Augusto Boal.

The most distinct feature of Forum Theatre is that it turns passive spectators to become proactive "spect-actors" by allowing them onstage to replace actors and change the outcome of a play.
