What is playback theatre?
Playback Theatre is a story-based improvisational theatre that builds connection, dialogue, and change. Volunteers from the audience tell personal stories during a performance, then watch as trained actors and musicians create theatre on the spot. Playback theatre takes place in theatres, schools, migrant labor camps, conferences, and more, in about 60 countries. Playback theatre focuses on the stories that connect us, or as the creators of playback say, the red thread that connects us all. It has been used for conflict management and resolution, political problem solving, and showcasing stories that may not normally be told.
