Advanced Elective: Introduction to Playback Theatre
Students learn the method of Playback Theatre, founded by Jonathan Fox with Jo Salas and others. Life stories are shared and then re-enacted spontaneously by a team of actors and a musician. It is an educational and curative form of theatre, now practiced in community settings worldwide in more than 50 countries. Students practice roles of conductor and musician as well as actor, paying attention to positive group process and studying basic theory, including the relationship of playback theatre to therapeutic practice. Playback forms taught include fluid sculptures, pairs, and full stories.
