Unwanted pregnancies cause a significant number of adolescents to experience unsafe abortion and its consequences. During our visit in refugee settlements, 11/22 interviewers estimated that 55% of abortions in one health centre occurred in adolescents aged 17 to 20 years. Of these abortions, 23% resulted in complications and the capacity to manage complications was limited. This project focuses on creating an interactive approach that involves the audience in developing real time strategies for enacting social and personal change using the theater problem solving tool. We create, rehearse and present scenes that show moments of social problems (child marriage, unsafe abortion, violence against children, climate change, community conflicts, youth unemployment & poverty…) and then invite the audience to intervene and enact solution to the problems presented.
