Introduction

Evaluation of our show at Marbella Youth Art Festival We decided to produce our forum theatre at "El Ingenio" as the Marbella youth festival took place there. This was a great opportunity to show our play and make people reflect about the important topic that we dealt with which is fitting in. We had been rehearsing for about two weeks and now we were to show our performance. What we tried and do was show the audience a common problem which everyone has seen or dealt with.

What we could have done to improve this would have been by setting up a microphone which would go around the audience as I asked questions and they answered them. This would have helped me a lot in the red card scene, as I could not see very well who had red cards, and when I asked them questions I could not hear very well what they were saying. ...read more.

Personally I found that doing this play we helped people to understand more about this problem, and together with audience we found out solutions for these kind of problems, which they can use in the future if they ever find themselves in a situation like the one we showed. ...read more.
