What it Playback Theater? Playback Theater is an improvisational theater form created in 1975 by Jonathan Fox in New York. Audiences members provide stories and content for the performance which the conductor (facilitator) helps relay to the actors and musician. The stories are told, actors are cast into roles, and the story is acted out improvisationaly in a way to reflect back the essence of the telling. Performances focus on various themes reflecting the experiences of the audience. Unlike some forms of improv theater, the goal of Playback Theater is first to reflect back and honor the experience of the Teller, vs. make the audience laugh. This form of theater is practiced in more than 30 countries across the world and is being used by larger numbers of people to heal the effects of war, oppression, to promote cooperative spirit, empathy and to have a lot of fun!
