Does It Matter? A Playback Theatre performance in Sept 2017

An old man tottering in the train while seats remain occupied. A community bike with a missing wheel--or two. People elbowing their way into the bus.

What kind of society are we enabling with our sense of entitlement? How do we build a community we'd be proud to live in; one in which we'd trust our neighbours to look out for us? What would a community of civic conscious people look like -- and will we get there?

Join Tapestry Playback Theatre in a conversation on what it takes for us to become a more caring and considerate community. Share your stories about civic conscious (or not!) acts and people in our community. 

Playback Theatre is an improvisational form of community theatre. The audience shares real moments from their lives and watch the performers play it back, with elements of cloth, movement, music, and spoken word.


Friends from the Deaf Community are welcome to join us! Please leave us a message to tell us or email us at Sign Language interpretation will be available upon request.


Tapestry Playback Theatre Ltd is a non-profit community theatre company that bases its transformative work on the playback theatre form.

Our vision is to create a safe and non-judgmental space where stories surface and dialogues happen. Our mission is to establish playback as a transformative tool in community by training and supporting competent playbackers.

Tapestry is a Company Partner of the Centre for Playback Theatre (CPT) and a member of the International Playback Theatre Network (IPTN).

Playback Rhapsody Sessions 02: Food for Thought

Join us for second of our Playback Rhapsody Series! Register for your free ticket at!

Playback Rhapsody Sessions is Tapestry's new initiative, in addition to our ticketed performances, Open Rehearsals, and Training Workshops.

This is a platform for community-building through the sharing of stories. It is also a valuable opportunity for our team to build skills and chemistry, particularly for members (old and new) who want to practice new roles.

With our ticketed performances moving towards socially-relevant themes, our free Playback Rhapsody Sessions will take on a lighter flavour. The first one back in April was titled "Fools 'R' us" and this coming one is called "Food For Thought!"

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

So see you on 29th July, 7pm at Toa Payoh Central Community Club, Dance Studio level 2 (Opposite the library @ 93 Toa Payoh Central Singapore 319194).

We hope to accommodate as many of you as we can, but there are limited spaces, so get your ticket now!

The event is free, but please support our practice with a donation. =)

Friends from the Deaf Community are welcome to join us! (Please leave a comment on our Facebook page to inform us if you're keen. Sign Language interpretation is available.)

Email us at if you have any questions!

Thank you and see you soon!
