Who has a story? LA Playback will play it back! The LA Playback Theatre Company was born in January of 2019 to serve the LA community by presenting spontaneous enactments of your true stories. Playback is an empathic humanizing form of performance that was created in New York in the 1970s by Jonathan Fox and Jo Salas. A skilled facilitator elicits stories and feelings from the audience and then an ensemble of professional actors and musicians bring these stories to life. Playback Theatre is used now in over 70 countries in various settings often to address transitional justice, human rights, and disaster recovery, and also for pure entertainment.
Playback Theatre allows you to be witnessed and to witness yourself in a way that can help you make new sense of your experiences and integrate them healthily into your future. Our performances have been described as healing and transformative. Let’s watch!
