What makes green mango theatre different from other theatre companies?

 

 

Green Mango Theatre is an applied theatre company. What is that? Fundamentally applied theatre is about working within the community using theatre as an agent for change. Applying theatre to a specific situation for a specific outcome.

 

These outcomes often includes artistic, educational and psychological benefits.This sets up a diverse range of possibilities for application, which include:

  • Theatre in Education
  • School workshops
  • Community Renewal
  • Corporate Sector Training
  • Adult Life Skills Workshops
  • Welfare Organizations
  • Community groups
  • The Criminal System
  • Youth at Risk
  • Children at Risk

What applied theatre isn’t– it is not drama therapy, it doesn’t work on a one to one level. It is placed firmly at a community level, working with groups, whose individuals may gain benefit from the experience or may find it opening up avenues of discovery.
