What is Playback Theatre?
Magical, creative, thought-provoking, reflective, unscripted...just like life itself. Playback Theatre is a format of improvisational, interactive theatre where the actors use their awareness, spontaneity, creativity, and skill to present an engaging and dramatised retelling of the participant member's story, on-the-spot! Through this format, a safe space is created for the sharing of personal stories and moments that help to see a particular subject from multiple perspectives.
