Playback Theater Workshops! In preparation for a company forming in 2019!

PBWorkshopsF18-FBCover

What is Playback Theater? It’s a form of improvisational theater where an audience member shares a true story and then watches it enacted on the spot by an ensemble of trained actors and musicians. So like the Feldenkrais Method, it involves deep listening. Playback Theater was developed by Jonathan Fox and Jo Salas in the 1970s and has since spread to be practiced internationally in schools, corporations, for peace and conflict work, and more. I’m a former member of The Living Arts Playback Theater Ensemble in the San Francisco Bay Area, directed by Armand Volkas, MFA, MA, MFT, RDT/ BCT, and I recently got a grant to start a company in LA in 2019 . . . .
