Hegemony and racism are just two of the concepts set to be explored by the latest Forum Theatre from Beyond Borders. Set amidst a university setting the drama tells of two candidates running for student president. What should be a straightforward election soon turns in to something else entirely.
For those of you who are not aware, forum theatre is a slight different form of stage play where the audience first watch a performance of a small play. The actors then proceed to repeat the performance for a second time while the audience is allowed to intervene and even come on stage in order to attempt to change the outcome of the play. Those brought on stage can suggest or do anything provided that it's not unbelievable or completely out of character for the person that they are replacing.
The Forum Theatre will be taking place on Saturday the 22nd at Punchi Theatre in Borella. For registrations and more details please visit http://beyondborders.lk/ft/ .
