Is it necessary to always arrive at a solution?

In this segment of the article, the author discusses the importance of finding a solution to an anti-model.

There are certain situations/models where solutions may not be found and some, where the
spectactors may come up with more than one possible solution. A lot of the times, what may seem
like a solution to one person might not seem like an answer to another. However, that does not
mean that there is no learning to be gained from the piece. Forum theatre evokes empathy, forces
the viewers to think about issues, helps them to gain multiple perspectives on a certain subject and
can even go as far as preparing them to face real life situations.

Forum theatre can also be used as a platform to preview a solution in situations where the outcome
is of vital importance. All case scenarios are examined and a detailed plan of action or response is
discussed/decided for each.

It is more important to analyse and understand the model than to achieve a solution. This is all the more true when the model in discussion does not demand an urgent solution.
