The Mysterious Link: Music and Playback Theatre

Instructor Jo Salas with Ann Belmont

January 23 & 24, 2021

9am - 3pm ET



In this workshop, we will explore how music plays multiple roles and is the mysterious link between all dimensions of great Playback Theatre. How can the musician perform as an actor? How can the actor and conductor engage more musically? How can we listen for the music that binds a story or short form together? We will get to know the instruments; experiment with the simple ways our voices have a powerful impact; notice how music affects the actions of the actors and emotional landscape of the story; and deepen our awareness about how music is foundational to the ritual dimension of good Playback Theatre. All instruments and levels of musical experience are welcome.
