What we offer
You may be planning ways of energising an away-day or training programme or wondering how to ensure that a conference is a memorable event for the delegates. You might be looking for ideas to enliven a family event such as a wedding or civil partnership, anniversary or even a memorial service. Or your community group might be wondering about how to celebrate an anniversary or festival. Whatever event you are organising we can work with you on planning an innovative, lively, and creative programme to suit your needs. What happens in a typical performance.
We play your stories. Playback Theatre offers an immediate, spontaneous and creative performance presentation. With impact! Using music, cloth and storytelling, performances enable shared interests and themes to emerge – ‘red threads’ which provide a basis for increased understanding, greater insight, empathy and connection between everyone present.
Why not follow up a performance with workshops in which participants have an opportunity to explore the themes which have emerged in the performance. Examples from previous workshops include: strengthening teams, diversity and difference, managing conflict, deeper listening and communication skills, enhancing spontaneity and creativity.
Personal and professional development
People who have experienced a Playback Theatre performance are often keen to try it out for themselves. The skills required for Playback Theatre are life enhancing – spontaneity, deep listening and creative communication. These qualities are directly transferable and make a dynamic and authentic contribution to the life of your workplace or organisation. We can work with you on how best to integrate this highly constructive approach to exploring difficult everyday issues, challenges and policies.
