What people have

been saying for

years...


 

 "I am truly thankful for the experience. I hope many people can experience it and have strong reflections and revelations." - Eve-Marie


"I felt the wonderment that comes with realizing I am a creative being," - Nisha Sajnani


   ''In just a few minutes, I felt part of a community. I love to see people trying out new stuff. It motivates me to do the same." - George

"You were able to create a climate of safety -- even for a middle-aged suburbanite woman." - Maureen

 

        What we will do together

 1. Warm up your imagination and senses!

We start by warming up our bodies and awakening our senses. Playing creative games, we light up our imaginations and quicken our intellects. How else could we connect to one another, if we are not connected to ourselves first?

 

2. Share stories & have them played back!

If you feel safe enough and ready, you may share a true story about yourself.  Now, before you get all hysterical or freeze up as you consider our most common fear - public speaking - imagine instead... being around creative helpers and caring artists like yourself also sharing their own stories - whether they be sad or uplifting, funny or poignant, fluffy or deep.  The result is often a tangible feeling of being seen truly and feeling heard deeply. Such a profound and total reflection of our experiences is very affirming. 

3. Learn the art of Playback Theatre

At the same time, we learn and practice together the art of listening and spontaneously playing back our experiences through Playback Theatre.

We often focus in on one technical form and/or an deeper aspect of the process in order to develop our artistic and helping skills.


Please Note: The most common fear -- before trying -- is that of screwing up or not playing back a moment as truly as one intends. The most common result -- after diving in and getting feedback from the group -- is one of exhilaration and pride at how natural it is to be up and acting along with a tangible sense of honour and gratitude for being trusted with a teller's story.
