Theatre & Creative Arts

Theater  is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers to present the experience of a real or imagined evataloent before a live audience in a specific place. The performers may communicate this experience to the audience through combinations of gesture, speech, song, music or dance. Elements of design and stage craft are used to enhance the physicality, presence and immediacy of the experience.

Now a days theater is using for a development of community. Theater has been used in community development in various ways:

Theatre can be an effective way of passing on information about an issue; it will not be effective if it ignores the local situation, culture and the knowledge and experience of the audience.Kusum-kali

Theater for development can encourage active participation from people whose voices are not normally heard in the community. Stories are used to help people express their understanding of what happens to them in their daily lives.

Theater can provide a way for the audience to participate in the issues raised. It can have a much greater impact than other forms of advocacy. Theater can challenge people who may be able to respond to and take action about the issues raised.

Theater can be used as therapy to help people deal with trauma and emotional problems. This usually requires special training and understanding.

Theatre for Development can be a kind of participatory theater that encourages improvisation and audience members to take roles in the performance, or can be fully scripted and staged, with the audience observing. Many TfD productions are a mix of the two.

The Sacrifice Trust is using this form in a different way. We called it `Theater for Transforming Community (TTC). TTC Specially based on using biblical worldview through the drama as people can know what is true and just. We believe that Bible is a true story where we can find true and just things which can change community people’s lives.

We Have 3 scripts for social awareness . These scripts are based on Illiteracy, Acid violence, and early marriage. This 3 dramas we have performed in different districts in Bangladesh.
