Playback theater

I was fortunate enough to play with Play Back Theater  at a Training of Trainers workshop by Class Action.  While I have experienced and used Theater of the Oppressed tools it was my first time with Play Back Theater.  For this work, there was an audience, actors, and a conductor.  I was one of the four actors who made fluid sculptures.  The conductor asked participants a question that would elicit an emotion, for example, “how are you feeling right now?”  And as actors, we would demonstrate that feeling.  It was an amazing reminder of the power of reflection and play.
