What is Playback Theatre?

Playback Theatre is a unique form of interactive theatre enabling audiences to tell their stories.


Playback Theatre is a safe way of exploring internal thought processes and using the arts to express and communicate.


People from the audience are invited to share moments from their lives.


They then see them being brought to life as the company immediately recreates the essence of their story using voice, movement, dance, music and song.
