“‘theatre-based’ does not do justice to the depth of knowledge on Leadership, Humanity and Learning given in this programme. This is Mastery. And the actual theatre-bit, which I dreaded? That gave me the most: immediate techniques, steps and actions, practiced in a challenging, but always safe place: thank you” Director Operations Retail

Method Examples

The below methods are used in toBE’s work together with the necessary theory, introduction and reflecting time.  Learning events are always specially designed for your people’s needs.  On completion each person and collectively people will have agreed measures of success & timelines.

A theatrical platform where audiences deal with the dilemma’s, challenges, resistances and contradictions of any given topic. Particularly powerful to encourage engagement, dialogue and connection in audiences with conflicting opinions and stances.

“The Forum Theatre approach embedded an integrated Customer Service approach from our 170 staff, serving the rest of our 4000 colleagues; rates were up significantly in the poll”

“Forum theatre allowed us to agree what each of us could do to improve the low morale towards a Positive Workplace. All 170 staff were ready for what was possible after taking part; no more ‘can’t do’!”

“The Forum Theatre woke up our corporate supporters how deeply challenging the rescue of Women from violence really is. ‘Why don’t you just leave’ is now understood to be a response that is not real”

“Our Global Connect Symposium, attended by 250 Senior Leaders from Asia, USA and Europe, brought the real challenges of connectivity home through the Forum Theatre. Colleagues from different parts of the world saw, experienced and felt the perspectives of each part’s challenges”

“Forum Theatre opened the conversation between us all on how to reduce Bullying and Inappropriate Behaviours in our workplace. From 1 in 4 experiencing or witnessing these behaviours, the next survey indicated only 13%. ”

Forum Theatre gives long-lasting impact, because it explores all perspectives holistically.

  • Image Work

“After so many re-organisations, the team was made up of people from different parts of the organisation with conflicting and overlapping ways of doing the work. The image work got to the heart of the matter within minutes; we developed our new identity in a day. This ground-work gave us new energy, clear priorities and a stronger sense of collaboration”

“We want to tell our story through actors” toBE facilitated a group of institutionalised women to express their story, using devised theatre and an actress.  We summarised it in a short film for them treasure.

“Our school will grow substantially on the next 2 years; the traditional way in which we work in the University will not support this – we need a radical shift of mind set and attitude. The image work fitted perfect to the master minds and individualist that work here; it was difficult and quick and enlightening.”

  • And…
