COMMUNITY engagement

Dialogue and Connection

"One of the strongest features of Playback Theatre is that it allows diverse voices to be heard in a context of empathy" - Jonathan Fox (Founder of Playback Theatre)

 

Performance

BAPT performances run from half-an-hour to one-hour-and-a-half. They are energetic, meaningful and interactive. BAPT performs for people of all ages, races, genders, classes, creeds and religions. The ideal audience size ranges between 35-100 people, depending on population and theme.

 

Introductory Workshop

BAPT offers half-day, whole day, or weekend introductory workshops in which your community group can learn the Playback method. These workshops are fun, insightful and open to all levels of experience. These workshops can also be organized around a specific theme.

 

Core Training

BAPT offers a week-long training residency in which the participants learn the technique in depth with the intention of using the method in their community.

This training is intensive and addresses both the artistic and social justice aspects of Playback Theatre.

 

 

 “  The Big Apple Playback performance was the highlight of the retreat. Our participants commented that it was the greatest gift that we could have given them. The stories were powerful and connected the group in a new way. The individual actors brought such talent and versatility to each scene. We were able to refer to you all as examples of what it means to "be in the body" -- an idea that seemed abstract to some people until they experienced your performances. We also worked with the compassionate listening that you modeled, as the storyweaver. It provided insight about how leaders can listen and how powerful listening really is  .”   Kate Ebner and Diane Tracy    Co-founders, Full Circle Executive Retreats
