In order to support the rapidly growing playback community in the Asian region, the Centre for Playback Theatre is coming to Asia with its first comprehensive residential training programme with international trainers.

Getting a strong start in playback theatre means taking enough time to immerse yourself in the rich atmosphere and dynamics of the playback experience. In this four-day intensive, you’ll learn all the basics, with lots of opportunities to practice. Playback forms will be taught—scenes, fluid sculptures, pairs, tableau stories, and more. Each student will have a chance to try the roles of conductor and musician as well as actor. And of course, everyone will tell and enact stories together, in the spirit of fun and fellowship.

This course is designed for beginners, and is also suitable for playbackers who would like to review basic principles and practice.

Fees include 4 nights and 4 days accommodation and all meals from dinner on Friday 28th Sept to lunch on Tuesday 2nd Oct.
