Perhaps some of Playback's new narrative forms are easier to work with, but nothing replaces the original long-story form in its richness, complexity, and impact. Are you using the full power of the long-story form in your Playback work? Do you work on its important elements--conductor's interview, ritualized setting-up, improvised enactment, including ensemble acting, and acknowledgment? In this short workshop Playback Theatre's co-founder will teach you how to up your game - and your performances - with long-story enactments.


Prerequisite: Core Training or equivalent*

*One year with an active company or 40 hours of practice
