We are excited and honored to welcome Olga Sanachina to our EAFI community to introduce us to the powerfully transformative Playback Theater!

Do you believe in the healing power of theater?
Did you know that theater originated in Greece as a means of emotional release for people?
Can theater be utilized as a tool for psychological support, social change, and transformative dialogue?

We strongly believe it can! Let’s meet Playback Theater and discover its power to support and work with communities.
Playback theater is a genre of improv theater where the audience shares their personal stories and performers act those stories out on stage.

You will:

  • Be introduced to Playback Theater as a tool of social, psychological, and theatrical work.
  • Feel motivated to learn more about Playback Theater in a future long-term program.
  • Learn 1-2 playback theater forms.
  • Co-Create an atmosphere of free creativity and trust.
  • Have an opportunity to see how Playback Theater can be utilized in your professional setting.


What to expect:

  • It’s important to dress comfortably for movement.
  • We will be moving and sitting, participating and watching.
  • You will be guided and taught; no experience is necessary.
  • This is an introductory experience to Playback Theater.
  • We will have tea and water and light refreshments.
  • You do not need to bring anything except an open mind and your creative spirit!
