Playback Theatre is a form that is unlike any other. Skills that you will learn in this workshop will value-add to any theatre or film acting you do, creatively devised or set pieces. Especially helpful for audition technique and monologues.  

Learn more about yourself as a person and an actor and grow in the depth of your performance capability. Playback Theatre is an international organisation. Active companies share ideas and actors and our Perth group audition for new members twice a year. It is a physical workshop with emotional depth where we share and honour our stories.  

We create a respectful, safe space where we work with heart, head and body. 

Be prepared to laugh, connect and be moved.

This workshop is suitable for young people aged 10-14.
