Conducting the Story, the Group, and the Event
Instructor Jo Salas
Saturdays & Sundays
June 12 & 13 and June 26 & 27
9am- 3pm ET
A skillful conductor knows how to bring out the important stories that are waiting to be heard in all their richness and wisdom. In this workshop, for both new and experienced Playback Theatre conductors, we will explore the many facets of this demanding role, including how to to listen for the heart of the story and explore the resonances within the audience. We'll consider the importance of language, the potency of silence, honoring the Playback ritual, and how to create an inclusive space for dialogue, which includes the art of warming up the audience. We¹ll also be telling our own stories, acting, and playing music.
