Actors practicing Playback Theater - The event’s official Facebook page
CAIRO – 5 February 2018: Bardo Urban Clubhouse and Drama for Life have organized a one day ‘Playback Theatre’ workshop at the Bardo Clubhouse for Friday, February 16.
The workshop aims to explore the colorful forms of ‘Playback Theatre’, which is a theatrical technique used to deepen actors’ connection with their roles through connecting them with their inner selves. This enriches the actors’ improvisational skills, according to the event’s description.
The organizers of the workshop believe that various playback practices enhance the actor’s creativity and self-confidence. Playback Theater personifies a kind of art of being active and “awake” physically and especially emotionally on stage.
This kind of theater is an original form of improvisational theatre based on interaction and spontaneous reactions through which actors share stories from their real lives on spot. It draws people together honoring their stories which offer fresh perspectives to the audience.
“Drama for Life” is an art space that offers workshops to all people, helping them experience all the different forms of drama especially creative drama, improvisation, playback, psychodrama and forum theatre, according to their official page on Facebook. They also believe that these techniques help people access their “inner actors” and explore the richness and creativity of their ideas.
Bardo Clubhouse offers workshops and classes for all levels of movement, Art, Design and multimedia according to their official page on Facebook.
