Live, bespoke, drama-based training being delivered by professional actors.

Drama Based Training

Inclusive, Immersive, Interactive

 

Learning that engages all the senses is powerful, memorable and effective! Experiential learning, using interactive drama based training is at the heart of our bespoke training programmes and interventions.

The drama and immediacy of live theatre is designed to create a metaphorical mirror reflecting prevalent behaviours, interactions and attitudes within the workplace. Characters are formed and
scripts are developed following thorough research into the organisation with focus on the learning
outcomes.

Our live theatre based training brings theory to life which is particularly valuable when training on how to effectively communicate with others – be that leadership, having difficult conversations, change management or team building. The observation of live drama drives discussion and enquiry, providing a unique opportunity for the audience to develop self-knowledge and awareness in a non-judgmental, open learning environment.

Drama Based Training Techniques:

Business Theatre

A live theatrical experience is an excellent way for actors to communicate directly with workplace personnel, highlighting recognisable challenges, engaging all the senses and encouraging empathy and engagement.

Forum Theatre

A highly interactive and revealing way of exploring issues using actors directed by the audience. Whilst the performing is left to our team of professional actors, the audience are able to stop and start the performance suggesting alternative actions which create a different outcome. Through lively discussion, participants develop empathy and understanding of consequences and eliminates the stress experienced through role play!
