Brisbane Impro: Brisbane Playback Theatre Friday April 24th 2009

If you're into improvised theatre, you might want to check out a performance by Playback Theatre this Friday, April 24th, at the Uniting Church at 52 Merthyr Rd, New Farm - doors open at 7.15pm and the performane kicks off at 8pm.

On their website, Playback say:

The material for the performance comes from the audience. Assisted by the conductor, who holds a performance, people in the audience share moments and stories from their lives, which are then immediately re-enacted or "played back" spontaneously by a troupe of usually four actors and a muscian.

The actors and muscian then take on roles in a dramatic form and, using dance, movement, mine, music, dialogue, sound and imagination, the story or moment is played back in a creative and magical re-enactment. No Playback performance is like any other and no-one quite knows what to expect when they walk through the doors. That is the spontaneous nature of Playback, for actors and audience alike.
