Saturday, April 18th
2-4 pm Performance “Stories of Resilience and Support”
4-6 pm Playback Theater Workshop (no experience needed)
Come and explore stories of how we support each other during challenging times, especially for high school youth and families affected by substance use, people in recovery and their loved ones. Audience volunteers are guided to spontaneously share moments from their lives related to the theme. Instantly, performers will capture in music, movement, and dialogue the emotional essence of what is shared.
After the performance, participants are invited to a workshop in skills of deep listening, physical theatre and song, to empathetically honor others’ life experiences. Those interested would be invited to further practice with a new troupe, Playback Theatre NOW which aims to serve communities in Springfield and throughout Western MA
This event is open and free to the public. Donations are welcome and appreciated.
Please RSVP on our Facebook Event page.
In partnership West Springfield High School and the Care Coalition.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the West Springfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
