Amanda and Alison offer clear foundations in the practise of Playback Theatre. Training courses have an emphasis on developing skills for spontaneity and physical expression. Central to the training is building group connection and improvising personal stories using the Playback Theatre forms. This offers the opportunity to develop integrity in performance and to strengthen trust in yourself and in your relationships with other group members. You will learn about story and how to create meaningful, artistic representations from the impressions and experiences offered by the “teller”. Courses are active and participatory. Lots of time is spent working and playing together.
