Melbourne Playback Theatre Company will open the ‘Celebrating Story’ Conference at the Abbotsford Convent tomorrow. Ian David & Andrew Gray will also facilitate a workshop on day one.
Please feel free to share your comments and continue the conversation here.
We’ve performed and run workshops for lots of young people recently. We’ve been struck by the courage these audiences have shown as they discuss the challenges and successes in their lives.
Whether it is the young leaders of the Mitchell Shire in Seymour, teenagers living in Whittlesea, year 9’s from MLC, participants in the MTC scholarship program, or one of the other playback events for young people, we have been regularly inspired.
If you’re a young person and you’ve been part of a playback performance or workshop recently, feel free to ask us a question or tell us what you thought.
Thanks for joining us this weekend for our public performances at Dancehouse.
We hope you will join us as we continue the conversation here on this site.
Share your thoughts, describe your experience and discuss what you saw with fellow audience members and performers from Melbourne Playback.
It’s ambitious, but with your help we think we can come up with 101 reasons to see a Melbourne Playback performance. Be creative, think laterally and preface your comment with the next number in the sequence.
To help launch our new blog site, we thought we’d celebrate the memorable moments that have occurred in our performances and workshops! In over 25 years we have performed for thousands of people and heard many amazing stories. There are many moments that stand out for us because they made us laugh or cry or inspired us in some way.
What do you remember?
It might be the time Melbourne Playback visited your organisation or it might be a public performance you saw. It might be a particular story you heard someone tell, an image that the actors made, or a song that has stayed with you for some reason. It might even be something that occurred after a Melbourne Playback performance – a conversation inspired by a story you heard or a relationship that changed.
Read about the moments that live on beyond our performances and share with us the memorable moments that you’ve had with Melbourne Playback Theatre!
