Project Alchemy Playback Theatre and Workshop Tour

As part of Project Alchemy, Rebus Theatre’s Playback Ensemble is touring their new show ‘At The End Of Our Street’ throughout September and October to multiple venues across Eurobodalla Shire, Bega Shire, East Gippsland, Queanbeyan–Palerang Regional Council and the Australian Capital Territory.

Playback Theatre 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 a community. They connect to each other and to their common goals and struggles.

‘At The End Of Our Street’ will see the audiences real stories enacted on stage in an interactive theatre show that will fill the heart and revive the spirit.

There will also be ‘Alchemy Acting Workshops’ held in each region. These workshops are a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people (or get to know your neighbour a little more) and have a bit of fun. You will learn theatre games and exercises, and reconnect with – what is for many of us – is a long lost sense of ‘play’.
