Melbourne Playback Theatre Company – come and play

You may have seen playback theatre before – a unique storytelling practice that transforms the personal stories of an audience into captivating theatre; where the audience are the scriptwriters of their very own show that has never been seen before and will never be seen again.

Well, now its time to dive below the surface and learn about the storytelling, listening and performance techniques that we at Melbourne Playback use in our work.

In this fun, playful and interactive session you will share stories, listen deeply and turn a story into theatre using a movement score or maybe even a song! If you’ve ever wanted to have a go at playback theatre, if you’ve ever been curious as to ‘how they do it’…come play.

No performance experience required. All that is required is a willingness to listen, play and share a story.

Our participants have referred to our workshops as ‘going to the gym for your soul’. We hope that the people who attend this workshop will leave more connected to themselves and to each other and ready to “tune in” to the stories they encounter.
