Rebus Theatre is extremely excited to partner with SpringOUT Festival to bring you a unique interactive celebration of ‘Pride in the Capital’ by the Rebus Playback Theatre Ensemble.

What’s SpringOUT? – SpringOUT is Canberra’s only pride festival. Held in November each year, it is a month-long pride festival that celebrates Australia’s most LGBTQIA+ friendly city and its LGBTQIA+ community in all its fabulous diversity.

What’s Playback Theatre? – Playback is a form of improvisational theatre in which audience members tell stories from their own lives and watch as actors and musicians enact them on the spot using movement, music and words, but without script or rehearsal. It can be moving or funny according to the stories shared.

Playback Theatre is a powerful way for people to share stories on common themes. Audiences are left with a better understanding of the issues that concern them as members of organisations, as co-workers, or as part of a community. They connect to each other and to their common goals and struggles. Playback is particularly suited to conferences, workshops and other events that address social issues, and for professionals who work in community and social welfare. It is a way to celebrate achievements, build teams and address workplace issues and organisational change.

Rebus recently ran Playback training classes as part of our Actorvate program and have developed an ongoing inclusive Playback Theatre Ensemble from this. If you are interested in booking Rebus to deliver Playback Theatre performances in your workplace or community, or joining the company, please contact us.

Rebus is supported by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres and the ACT Government.
