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 through various Playback ‘Forms’. The actor’s response is a creative, spontaneous, physical improvisation within a framework of structured ritual.

Playback Theatre creates a ritual space where any story – however ordinary, extraordinary, hidden or difficult – might be told, and immediately made into theatre. A space where each person’s uniqueness is honoured and affirmed while at the same time building and strengthening our connections to each other as a community of people.

Full Circle rehearsals and performances are now available both in person and online. Please contact us for any enquiries for yourself or your community.
