“Risk taking, energetic, whimsical.”
“What an extraordinary and entertaining evening.”
Experience a unique form of improvisational theater, where stories or dreams are brought to life on the spot.
Members of the audience are invited to tell stories from their lives, then watch as we instantly enact them using movement, music and dramatic spoken word. The stories may be funny or sad, memories from long ago or yesterday. Audience and performers co-create a theater event whose subject is the life experiences of the people attending the show.
See why Playback Theater is performed in over 50 countries for people of all ages- for anyone with a story to tell.
Playback Theater builds connections between people by honoring the dignity, drama and universality of their stories. These audience interactive performances build trust, deepen understanding and create opportunities for personal and group enrichment.
Bay Area Playback Theatre is an ensemble of professional performers with varied and complementary backgrounds in theater, music, movement, therapy, psychodrama, education, magic, mime and clowning.
