What is Playback theater

An often poetic universe of spontaneity, openness, listening, sensitivity, non-judgment, simplicity, respect ...

Playback theater is a theatrical encounter where spectators can tell moments or stories from their lives and see them improvised on the spot. Each scene is a humble and unpretentious reflection that seeks to remain faithful to the story told and allows the storyteller to see it in a new light.

It is a play space that invites sharing.

This technique was developed by Jonathan Fox and Jo Salas in 1975 and is now practiced in over sixty-five countries. Its artistic and sociological influences are community rituals, oral traditions, improvisation, music, and the firm belief that everyone has a place in their community.
