Playback theatre is a form of community theatre that is both improvisational and interactive.

It takes stories from the community and plays them back to the audience.

Playback uses various dramatic forms and styles, with elements of movement, text, music and cloth.

At its heart, playback serves the community by building connections and facilitating dialogue.

Playback theatre is a unique form of improvisational, interactive theatre that combines the oral traditions of storytelling, the use of rituals, deep listening skills and various performing styles.

Essentially, playback theatre uses the arts as an act of service to affirm each person's uniqueness, and at the same time, builds and strengthens our connections to each other as a community of people.
