What is Playback Theatre?

Playback Theatre is an improvisational theatrical method created through a unique collaboration between performers and audience in which an audience member tells a story and the actors re-enact the story though various Playback ‘Forms’. The actor’s response is a creative, spontaneous, physical improvisation within a framework of structured ritual.

Playback Theatre creates a space in which each person’s uniqueness is honoured and affirmed while at the same time builds and strengthens our connections to each other as a community of people.
