Playback Theatre is improvisation like you've never imagined. A unique collaboration between audience, performers and musicians, this theatre genre transforms the audience members’ real life experiences into theatre on the spot! Instantaneously! In a business environment the pressure to move from one task to another does not allow opportunity to pause and pay attention to what we are experiencing. Playback adds a whole different dimension of engagement as we allow the time and focus to listen to audience experiences and what is revealed is a rich layer of meaning and relevance which can get lost in our everyday multi - tasking lifestyle. Personal stories are reframed in a theatrical form which acts as a reflection to a group and works to allow the participants and the storyteller to gain an alternate and fresh perspective on the experience. A playback performance in itself is learning forum as watching the acting ensemble work with improvisation is both exciting and enlivening and is an inspiring teamwork model. A standout aspect of this unique process is the active listening which the ensemble utilise in a deep and engaged way.
