THE PLAYGO ENSEMBLE
Playback Theatre & Improvisation shows and workshops
A little background on Playback theatre and improvisation
Playback Theatre was founded in New York, 1975.
Playback Theatre is a theatre method in which personal stories become the inspiration
and source material for creative, magical
and empowering moments on the stage.
Founders of the first PT company Jonathan Fox and Jo Salas incorporated some of the methods used in psychodrama, improvisation and storytelling and created a new theatrical genre known all around the world as Playback Theatre. The audience members are invited to share stories from their life, employing the unique playback theater method, the actors listen to the stories, then engage in improvised acts of the stories on stage. The stories are presented in short theatrical forms – skits that are filled with images, metaphors, humor, drama and music. Personal stories from audience members become the inspiration and source of material for creative, magical and empowering moments on the stage. All involved in this interactive theatrical exercise- the story tellers as well as the audience share a unique opportunity to take part in a ritual that will bring them closer and to feel greater empowerment
