Women’s March Napa Valley is proud to introduce:
THE LIVING ARTS PLAYBACK THEATRE ENSEMBLE
Sunday, November 5, at 2:00 pm
Napa Methodist Church, 625 Randolph Street, Napa
Our mission is to continue building bridges for justice and peace by hearing each others stories
and committing ourselves to action based activism.
In this special performance, audience members are invited to share personal stories of acts of resistance. The actors and musicians will “play back” your stories on the spot, incorporating music, movement, ritual and spoken word improvisation.
At the heart of this work is a profound respect for the power of personal story to build bridges between people and cultures.
Bring your own story:
An act of disobedience; a clever act of subversion; a bold act of courage!
The Living Arts Playback Theatre Ensemble is a troupe of improvisational actors and musicians who “play back” personal stories shared by audience members in ways that both honor and illuminate the original experience. The ensemble produces performances, workshops and events for personal, professional and organizational growth.
Created in 1986 under the direction of psychotherapist and drama therapist Armand Volkas, The Living Arts Playback Theatre Ensemble, in collaboration with The Healing the Wounds of History Project, has received international acclaim for its work in bringing groups in conflict together such as Germans and Jews; Palestinians and Israelis; Japanese, Chinese and Koreans on their legacy of WWII and Armenians and Turks.
At the heart of its work is a profound respect for the power of personal story to build bridges between people and cultures. The Living Arts Playback Theatre Ensemble is a member of the International Playback Theatre Network and performs for corporations, schools, hospitals, community celebrations, conferences and for the general public.
