Are you a kindred spirit?

If your practice involves at least three of the elements, we would like to connect with you!  Especially if you are part of a networks or organization that brings together people doing that type of practice, and you think Playback practitioners could benefit from knowing about it.   We also invite you to explore below the gifts of Playback Theatre and Embodied Empathy, and consider whether they could benefit others in your network or profession. 
Please join the mailing list, and use the “contact us” page to be in touch.

Curious about Playback Theatre?

Playback Theatre is a world-wide improvisational performance art, originating in the U.S. in 1975.  It is mostly practiced by experienced, ongoing Playback companies.

The rewards of Playback are deep for the performers, the story-sharers, and audience members who witness the artistic exchange.

Curious about Embodied Empathy?

Embodied Empathy  (E2), derived from Playback Theatre and other improv forms, refers to easy-to-learn, full-bodied listening and story-sharing practices that can be quickly learned and brought into daily life.

People practice E2 to enrich their lives at work and at home with creativity, fun and connection.
