Post-performance workshops offer more time to explore themes and ideas that have emerged in the performance. London Playback team members are skilled in creative facilitation, and we offer playback-based structures to support deeper discussion and sharing.

Examples from previous workshops include: strengthening teams, diversity and difference, managing conflict, deeper listening and communication skills, enhancing spontaneity and creativity.

Playback Theatre expands the individual perspective and strengthens connections.
