Playback Theatre “Here and Now” the theatre of your story
About Playback Theatre improvisational theatre it plays back personal stories from the audience everything is spontaneous (the stories, the music and enactment) It’s created in 1975г. in USA by Jonathan Fox and Jo Salas. 40 years later with International Playback Theatre Network it’s spread all over the world. It’s used successfully not only for it’s art qualities, but for its huge social meaning. It has strong ethics- integrity, tolerance, understanding and positive personal and social change trough art. People can gain insight, catharsis, connection, and self-expression through telling their stories and participating in enacting stories of others.
Realization Conductor – communication with audience, the connection between actors and audience Musician- with lots of musical instruments he creates special music for every single scene. Actors- between 4 and 6, trained in creativity and spontaneous theatre. They listen in a specific way and recognize the important things in the story. They use their imagination and create theatre few seconds after they here the story. Properties and stage set- the only thing we use is cloths in different colors and some chairs Continuance- an hour and a half for every performance Space – it’s easy to adapt almost in every space

Beyond borders and out of comfort zone Playback gives opportunity to see ourselves and others from different point of view, to change the way we see life and to understand it better. It has social meaning because it unites communities and helps people connect trough theatre and music. In our company we believe magic can be part of everyday life if we allow ourselves to leave the comfort zone. Every playback performance is a little piece of magic. « The need of telling and listening to stories is deeply needed for Homo sapience- after subsistence but before love and roof. Millions are survived without love and home, but no one- in silence.» Reynolds Price
