About Playback

  It began in 1975 in New York.
  Playback is improvised theatre.
It’s exciting.
  There’s no script.
  There’s usually four or five actors,
    a musician,
    and an MC (or a “conductor”)
    who helps audience members to tell moments or stories
    from their own experience,
    and these become the source
    of the performance
    as the actors
    and musician
    play them back
    with words, movement and
  The result is instant
    creative collaboration
    between performers and audience.
  Every performance is unique.
