Example text

Chen: Yes, what we’re trying to do in Viewpoints is that when we work with Palestinian homogeneous groups, [a Palestinian] is facilitating the Forum Theatre and the discussion. And when we work with the Israeli Arabs, [we have Israeli Arab] Jokers. But the method is the same. We had a discussion about whether we should mix the facilitators, and the decision was that each side would facilitate their own group. I didn’t agree with this, as I don’t think it’s a good idea actually; I think it’s better to work with mixed facilitators.

Look. See? Sol heard us. Sol: What is your idea, Luna? OF: (to child) What is your idea again? Child: (whispering to OF) Take turns. OF: (as Luna) Sol, we should take turns. Sol: Do you mean take turns sitting in the sun and the shade? OF: (to child) Is this what you mean? Child: Yes. OF: (as Luna) Yes. Sol: Hmm . . that’s a good idea. Luna, will you come and sit in the sun with me first? OF: (to child) What do you think? Child: Yes. OF: (as Luna) Yes. Sol: Good. You come sit over here with me for two hours, and then I will sit in the shade with you.

The OF communicates to the puppeteer the suggestion that will be enacted and at what point in the scenario the reenactment should begin. The puppeteer then enacts the suggestions without further input from the children. • Direct communication with the puppets (guiding/ facilitating).
