The Art of Listening in Playback Theatre
In Bob Edwards show you would listen to Jonathan Fox explaining his experimentation on the art of listening to human stories. "Playback Theatre is a unique experience, both for the audience and the performers. There’s no script, no set, no costumes. The scenes come from stories told by the audience. The founder of Playback Theatre, Jonathan Fox, says those stories can be about anything — no drama is required. The actors listen intently, and then perform the story with improvised movement, words and music. The performance makes the story part of a universal, shared experience."
