This article looks at how applications of Forum theatre process and related approaches in India may operate in terms of activation of particular modes of learning centred in the body. It discusses the body: as context (individual and collective, embedded in social, political, physical and emotional practices); with reference to process (activation, multiplication of kinds of knowing through theatre work); as extended beyond everyday operation and beyond the individual/egoic towards collective experience and action, including co-creativity and ‘rational collective action’. The article explores the operation of forms of embodied learning in Forum practice, with particular reference to the work of Jana Sanskriti, in India.
