Perth Playback Theatre Company has been operating for 37 years and is one of the most established playback theatre companies in the world. Playback Theatre was founded in 1975 by New York area artists Jonathan Fox and Jo Salas and has evolved into an interactive, improv-based storytelling form that is practiced in 50 countries with training centers and affiliates all over the world.
“I went to several Perth Playback Theatre sessions during the Perth Festival. I enjoyed the quick and spontaneous way that the group interpreted the stories presented by the audience. In just a few moments, without any discussion, they presented a little vignette that was interesting and thought provoking and the amazing thing was the group worked as a whole and were not fragmented. It is ingenious.”
Performances are based on audience members’ own stories, and unfold spontaneously through music, movement, and audience participation.
Perth Playback Theatre’s work with organisations and communities includes:
Leadership Team building events
Scenario and Role Playing for Human Resource Development
Supporting conflict management
Supporting change management
Our actors, facilitators and musicians are trained in the specialised art of Playback Theatre. We come from all walks of life; our backgrounds include professional performers, teachers, drama therapists, counsellors, health professionals, musicians, choreographers, foster carers, radio presenters, artists, film makers and life coaches. That wide realm of experience enhances our work on stage as it helps us to understand and engage with all the stories the audience brings.
We work with schools, community groups, corporates, not-for-profits, government departments to offer a tailored approach to meet the needs of the clients
