Update from Manitoba Cultural Society of the Deaf (MCSD) re: Playback Theatre

Playback Theatre - Tell your story and see it acted out in improv theatre!

Arts and Disability Network Manitoba Event: Playback Theatre - A Mini Workshop and Improvisational Performance event. 

ASL Interpreters will be there. Sat, 27 February, 1:30 – 4:00 pm at Platform in Artspace - 100 Albert

Join us for a few theatre games and a Playback Theatre performance. 
Playback Theatre is improvisational theatre that starts with listening deeply to people's stories and then transforming them spontaneously into theatre. 
It is especially powerful in honoring the voices of people from marginalized communities and in helping to build understanding across differences. It is hoped that playback theatre could be a tool to both build community within ADNM and to educate the public.
