Stories for Change - Core Training 2015 completed!

Stories for Change - Playback Theatre Core Training, a 40-hour workshop was completed over the last 2 weeks. 

The smiles, the tears, the hugs have transformed these 12 people into friends with a special connection and a community of playbackers. 

We feel privileged to share your stories and be a part of the beginning of your playback journey. Lots of love to each of you, and wishing you all many beautiful stories to come.

18/4/2015. Day 3: Stories for Change - Playback Theatre Core Training

Day 3: We explored different music instruments, and the roles, power and impact of music in Playback Theatre. We shared more stories from our lives, and found ourselves closer to one another, and closer to ourselves. Now we take a pause, to digest, to feel, to reflect, and to return refreshed next week.

We hope to accommodate as many of you as we can, but have limited space, so get your ticket below now! 

This event is free, but we hope you can help support our practice with a small donation. 

Thank you and see you soon! 


Playback Theatre. The power of stories. Any story. All stories. Someone shares a moment, and the performers will playback it back, with movement, sound, music, cloth and embodiment. Any life moment is played - happy or sad, hilarious or humdrum. It can produce change, new insights and feelings, and even transformation, through the atmosphere of affirmation, creativity and reflection.

This event is supported by Toa Payoh Central Community Club and PassionArts.

Ctrl+Alt+Del - our upcoming playback theatre show

We reboot our our computers. Ourselves. Our dreams. Our relationships.

What is in our control? What is not? What are the alternatives? What can we delete? What do we reboot? What happens on reboot? What are the consequences of a restart? What is important to remember? Where do we go from here?

What stories do you recall? What would you like to share?


Dates: May 23 (7:30pm), May 24 (3pm)
Venue: Toa Payoh Central Community Club Theatrette
Tickets from or click the link at the bottom of the page!


This is a Playback Theatre show, where moments and stories are shared by the audience, and spontaneously enacted by the performers, using elements of music, movement, cloth and spoken scenes.

As with all Playback Theatre shows, there is no script. There is a theme however, and it is Ctrl+Alt+Del. Come join us and build community with stories!
