The PictoTheatre

The PictoTheatre is a mobile small-scale theatre for making difficult conversations more playful and visual. It consists of a box and a set of physical pictograms. When you slot an iPad or tablet into the box you can immediately start visualizing your conversation and life stories with the help of background pictures and the pictograms. 

Scissors and paper are also included enabling you to form new pictograms to enrich your stories. The intention of the PictoTheatre is to democratize language and empower you as a storyteller, you are offered a visual language to tell your stories and express your feelings. 

The toolbox is realized as a prototype and has been developed in cooperation with participators, including former drug addicts, social workers and refugees.
