BB is doing a Forum theater performance on the 29th of August
FT is an audience interactive mode of theater that lets the people watching stop, modify and redirect the story. It is loads of fun. And if you are the sadistic kind who likes to see actors suffer while they try to bring to life scenarios that are inside your head then this is right up your dark, dimly lit alley. Although in some cases you may be asked to come up on stage to perform a certain critical role yourself.
FT is great when it comes to dissecting complex social issues because of the myriad opinions involved. As such, a proactive, intelligent and participative audience is usually a key element.
JERK? focuses on ADHD, often a misunderstood condition in Sri Lanka. In fact, it is hardy known. Barely a thought is usually given to how sufferers cope up in a society that doesn't even recognize what they are suffering from. To illustrate, JERK? takes you through the rollercoaster ride of Rajeev; disturbed, distracted, a teenage rebel cum mathematical genius. The issues will be discussed as the story develops, through the various twists and turns of the plot.
It is for invitees only, so if you'd like to come please leave a comment, drop a mail, or even better text or call one of these numbers; 0777 335 320, 0777 491 718. Invites are limited, so you may want to make a little ha(-y while the sunshines)ste.
