Thinking Caps


Using Edward de Bono’s landmark book about ethics and critical problem solving as a springboard, this performance/workshop brings six different ways of thinking to life for students in simple, easy to access language. Day to day situations are presented that give students a chance to first try out the six thinking hats, then they are presented with a dramatic scenario (The Bully / The Accident / The Trial), which they can fully interact with, trying out the problem solving skills they have learned. Their unique responses help shape the way the presentation travels, leading the characters in the scenario down different paths in an ethical choose your own adventure. This is a highly original take on de Bono’s thinking that also embraces techniques from the Boal Image & Forum Theatre models now studied in Secondary Drama.
