The Forum - Theater has a rather interesting history: many performances, dozens of actors who have changed over the years... and now archiving of this story begun - the scenarios were collected and published in one collection. This is kind of a guide about a  scenario the performances are built on...

In July, rehearsals and performances were actively held. The Forum - Theater held two performances in Kutaisi - in the central park and in a new park on the bank of the Rioni River.

There were not many spectators, but their feedback was interesting. Tourists spoke with particular enthusiasm. They drew attention to the importance of this unusual form of dialogue with the audience.

The Fund "Sukhumi" has three theaters: a forum theater, a shadow theater and a puppet theater.

This month, the puppet theater became more active, it began rehearsals and held performances.

On June 1, on Children's International Day, a performance "The Turtledove" was held for the kids, who were in the Rehabilitation Center of the Women Fund "Sukhumi". The children really enjoyed the performance. Their favorite characters spoke about friendship and love in a language they understood.

On June 20, on the International IDP/Refugee Day, young actors came out in front of the audience in Kutaisi, in the "Park of Love". The topic of tolerance, expressed in the words of puppets, turned out to be interesting for the audience.

There were cheers, applause, photo sessions…

Forum-theater finished May with active work. It presented 4 performances in Kutaisi Botanical Garden, taking part in the event of the gender club. Then the performances were held in the "SOS-Children's Village".

All scenes were interesting for the audience, but their special attention was drawn to migration and the relationship between children and parents. These issues have become the topics for discussions. The viewer was also actively involved in the performances.

After a long online work, the updated forum theater team is happy to communicate with the audience, discuss problems and look for ideas for new performances.

Finally, live communication with the audience has begun!

April was especially active for the forum - theater. There were 4 performances: in the school of the village Didi Nedzi (Zugdidi municipality), in the conference hall of Zugdidi municipality, in Terjola Youth Center and in Kutaisi Central Park.

A live performance in front of the audience was important for the actors of the forum-theater. The audience was actively involved in the discussion. Young people frankly spoke about how important it is for society to be involved in violence prevention. It was noted that such real scenes give the viewer, especially teenagers, the opportunity to think and look for a way out.

The teachers, who attended the performances noted that it would be fine to invite the forum - in schools in order to have a positive impact on teenagers.

The pandemic prevented the work of the forum - theater. Now pleasant innovations have begun: the group was filled with new actors, new scenes were written, rehearsals and performances were updated. In March, the forum - theater held two performances in Kutaisi, in the open air.

The group of young actors is planning an even more active spring - they will travel to different municipalities, show the viewer scenes on actual topics, and then there will be discussions so that everyone can see the problems and ways to solve them...

In February, the forum-theater operated both live and online. Rehearsals were held, videos were recorded. The young actors held two performances in the central parks of Kutaisi. Despite the fact that the theatre did not have many viewers, the performance is still important in terms of violence prevention.
