Playback Theater: Allowing all voices to be heard

Vera Lardi actress

Language: greek

 Playback Theater is interactive. The participants narrate their personal stories and playback theater performers improvise on them on stage by using specific Forms of representation. Playback Theater can be used in education in order to cultivate and release a group’s creativity through bodily and vocal expression, production of music and the symbolic use of objects. It focuses on here and now and gives space to the participants to express their opinions and experiences regarding a given subject, negotiate their values and beliefs, earn a better understanding of their place in the world and share their feelings about it, suggest actions of personal and social change. In this  workshop, we will experiment with the basic playback theater forms and we will use them to reflect the group’s stories. We will explore theater of spontaneity and its ability to awaken collective creativity and joy during the educational process, and to transform personal experience to collective. Also, we will experiment with basic psychodramatic techniques that can be used in the process of exploring a theme by a group.
