devising theatre just for you.
Playback Theatre Sydney works with groups to devise theatre around specific messages – such as safety, ethics or bullying – as it easily communicates complex material in a fun and creative way. It provides an ideal conduit for learning, especially for those without computer access or for audiences of varying language and engagement levels. Playback Theatre builds comedy, drama and music into scripts so audiences learn without realising and enjoy the message.
Playback Theatre Sydney also performs ‘Theatre on the Run’ in organisations for small or large forums. Highly skilled improvising actors listen in to presentations and audience responses and retire for an hour to create relevant theatre pieces to be performed that same day. ‘Theatre on the Run’ works extremely well after lunch to energise groups or sat the end of a day to sum up the day’s material.
Let Playback Theatre Sydney work with you in your organisation or community to build theatre focused on your particular messages. Script, music and choreography engage target audiences, convey key messages and provide specific learning outcomes – all in an engaging and entertaining way!
