Workshop | Dec. 16 | People’s Playback Theatre Happening!

Calling all actors, healers, and/or curious explorers of story, dialogue, social justice and embodied narrative! Playback Theatre is taking root in Los Angeles, and we want you to get IN on it.

Playback Theatre is spontaneous theatre based on stories told by audience members. Life stories are shared, cast, and then enacted on the spot by a team of actors/dancers and a musician.

Inspired by the experimental theatre movement, psychodrama, and oral tradition of indigenous cultures, Playback Theatre was created in upstate New York in the 1970s by Jonathan Fox, Jo Salas, and the original PT Company. The method is now practiced across the world in sixty countries, and is used in a variety of settings including conferences, schools, colleges, prisons, hospitals, service agencies, and public theatres.

Los Angeles hasn’t had a Playback company in years, but 2 – YES, CHECK IT, TWO – companies are in the works of forming!! LA can handle that and more. We will be supporting each other as we grow. It’s a dynamic and exciting moment.

One of the new companies, People’s Playback, will be looking for a diverse group of individuals to audition. Right now, we are sending out the call to introduce the form to people who might not have heard about it. This evening will be an opportunity for you to get up, act, move, play music, and take part in creating the ritual. (No prior experience necessary.)

Join us for our first Happening. Through Playback Theatre we will invite dialogue, build community, and strive to create compelling theatre, while making space for laughter, reflection, connection, and healing.

Spread the word. December 16th.
