In this experiential workshop, participants will be invited to explore how to use playback theatre to unfold, uproot and unearth the ancestral stories and wisdom that can guide us towards the future we want to co-create. Using playback techniques, we’ll explore together through looking back and looking within to understand how our ancestors’ journeys, challenges and experiences shape our identities and can help us pave the road we wish to journey onwards.
