• 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.

    Breathing Fire made some major changes having decided to restructure the organisation. A number of the group left us. We really appreciated and valued the journey we had together with these former members and wish them every success in their various future endeavours. We are exploring a future structure and are excited about this including recruitment of new members as there has not been an opportunity for women to join the group since our last recruitment in 2010. The process is being overseen by Breathing Fire’s business group and we are really pleased to have involvement from founding members of Breathing Fire to support our plans.

    We are available for performances and workshops as usual – so please do get in touch!
