Transforming Our 2020 Stories: A Playback Theater Performance & Discussion
Over the course of the past months, we’ve been navigating the uncertainty, challenges, and occasional unexpected joys of staying at home. The courage of those who are working on the frontlines of the COVID crisis has awed and inspired us. The powerful and far-reaching mobilization and protest against systemic racism and growing disparities has moved us. The heartbreak of losing loved ones unexpectedly has angered and saddened us. Throughout, we’ve sought new and creative ways to sustain ourselves and support each other. As therapists, we have all been living and managing not only your own stories, but also witnessing and helping others understand theirs as well. In Playback Theater, audience members can volunteer to share their stories, or watch actors embody and perform stories using gesture, sound, movement, and voice. Come share your stories of struggle, hope, fear, success, and more on Zoom…and we’ll transform them for your delight and enhanced insight. Afterwards, we’ll invite an open dialogue, and discuss how Playback can be used online for working with the populations and communities we serve.
