What does a typical performance look like?
The performance is usually about an hour but can be longer or shorter according to the needs of the organization.
People from the audience will be invited to share their stories, usually around a specific theme.
The theme of the performance will be decided in advance and a group of professional playback actors will start presenting and giving life to the stories they will hear.
In the heart of the event our actors improvise the moments, feelings and stories offered by the audience. Participants are invited to share their stories which are then played back by the actors. Individuals and audiences are delighted and often moved as they see the recreation of their own and other’s stories as theatre.

We offer a workshop that will occur before the show or a follow up workshop that gives participants an opportunity to explore emerging themes from the performance in more depth.
