Free Trial! dramatic conflict mediation | Image © Supertanker
Since 2003 Supertanker has facilitated a series of public hearings on controversial urban issues in Copenhagen by means of the theatrical Free Trial! conflict mediation method. The method was developed by Supertanker as a hybrid between a panel debate and a court case, and draws on the tradition of political and activist theatre.
