Popular Theatre

Popular Theatre describes theatre which speaks to ordinary people in their own language or idiom, and deals with issues that are relevant to them. It also concentrates on awakening the capacity of those involved to participate, to make their own decisions and to organize themselves for common action.

Reflective practice enables recognition of the paradigms – assumptions, frameworks and patterns of thought and behaviour – that shape our thinking and action.


It’s an exciting time to be doing participatory communication work in development with an explosion of new methods, technologies, theories, and approaches taking place around the world.  Nearly 90% of the world’s population is now covered by mobile phone signal. China has 513 million Internet users (CNNIC 2011/12). In South Africa 90% of the population have mobile phone subscriptions. Increasingly sophisticated visual methods, networking tools, and data collection tools give us access to different forms of knowledge.
