Show Description -
Playback Theater is an improvisational form in which audience members provide stories, often relating to a given theme. Then, using music, movement, dialogue and soliloquy, Ensemble actors bring each story to life, illuminating its essential meaning.

In a purely theatrical setting, the experience is one of collaborative, dramatic and entertaining storytelling. In an organizational setting, Playback Theater can provide the audience with opportunities for validation, connection and understanding through dramatic enactment.

Through sharing our individual experiences we become a community. Threshold Ensemble invites you to join us as stories become dramas that delight, move, affirm and show us the heights and depths of life in our co-created world.

Playback Theater was founded by Jonathan Fox in 1975. Threshold Ensemble is a member of the International Playback Theater Network. Want more detailed information about what Playback is? Go to IPTN.

"I thought that this was a great conference, but when the Threshold Ensemble brought us all together at the end, any remaining walls came tumbling down. A superb experience, all in all." - Conference attendee “Storytelling for Prevention, Building Wellness in Our Communities”

“What you did here was just amazing, you moved mountains today. You gave a voice to men who think that their lives don’t matter. I want to have you back. I’m going to get a grant to have you here regularly!”
