BASTA Forum Theatre (NL)

The Dutch BASTA Theatre company is fully devoted to bringing Forum theatre to the people. Based on a short play focused on implementation in healthcare, its players will engage EIE2020 attendees to become true "spect-actors" who question, interrupt and shape the things that happen on stage. This stage will function as a laboratory for the joint developing and testing of solutions to real world implementation problems. The BASTA theatre is led by the highly experienced "joker" Monique van Wielink, who will facilitate this "not-to-be-missed" performance.
