Azimuth Performance Lab at Expanse: Move up, move up - Chinook 2020
Sharing diverse stories through Playback Theatre
ATB Financial Arts Barns - Westbury Theatre
Move up, Move up, invites us all to consider how we can move towards telling our stories that don’t often have the space to be shared or to move towards listening to stories in order to honour diverse voices. In this 2 hour workshop, participants are invited to experience playback theatre-based activities to embody and share stories. Playback Theatre is a form of improvisational theatre that invites audience members to share stories from their lives, which actors reflect back using improvisation including movement, words, metaphor and music. The workshop is open to all levels of experience with theatre-based activities and people can choose the level of participation to which they feel comfortable.
Third Space Playback Theatre Edmonton is a group of diverse individuals committed to
exploring the themes of intersecting identities through playback theatre in order to
promote dialogue, community change, and social justice. We are committed to creating
spaces of dialogue from a diversity of Indigenous and settler communities.
