Through skilled facilitation and engaging performance, Playback energises Community Forums. It allows positive and negative experiences to be raised and demonstrates them on stage in a non- judgemental way. This enhances communication and builds connections or understanding between people. Playback performances allow the real stories of the community to be explored adding emotion and texture to meetings and gatherings.
Playback is also a wonderful tool to explore why people contribute to community work and what it provides. It highlights the input of varied stakeholders and can offer new perspectives. It is also a valuable tool to celebrate individuals, projects or milestones. Playback Theatre can raise community awareness, show personal contribution, acknowledge exceptional effort and celebrate communities in an enjoyable inclusive manner.
