Art as Activism: A Playback Theater Workshop

1 pm - 5 pm

TBD

The Open Table KC

Sponsored by:

RESCHEDULED from DEC 7!!!! THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR JANUARY. MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW IN THE NEXT WEEK. New Registration link to follow.

Join us for a workshop experience with Emily Bartlett of b.hive theatre as she leads us through playback theatre experience! This is open to all people, all experiences, artists or not. A suggested donation of $10 is requested, but not required.

What is playback theatre?

Playback Theatre is a story-based improvisational theatre that builds connection, dialogue, and change. Volunteers from the audience tell personal stories during a performance, then watch as trained actors and musicians create theatre on the spot Playback theatre takes place in theatres, schools, migrant labor camps, conferences, and more, in about 60 countries.

Playback theatre focuses on the stories that connect us, or as the creators of playback say, the red thread that connects us all.

Why playback during our Arts as Activism?

Playback starts with the premise that everyone has a story and everyone’s story is worth hearing. Playback gives us a space to sit and actually focus on each other. When stories are enacted in front of us we find more empathy within ourselves and develop our emotional capacity for others. Playback can bring us together as actors and audience, breaking through the power dynamic of “us/performers” and “them/audience”.

Playback has been used for conflict management and resolution, political problem solving, and showcasing stories that may not normally be told.

FAQ:
No theatre experience necessary.
Snacks and beverages will be provided.
Ages 12+.
Wear clothes that allow for movement, whatever that looks like or means for your body.
Bring a journal and something to write with.
A performance will follow the workshop at the same venue from 5:30-6:30 pm for free.
