Practicing with Playback: Trust
Tuesday, February 14, 2023, 11:45am to 1pm
University of Tennessee Health Science Center SAC Building Auditorium, First Floor, 800 Madison Avenue, Memphis, TN 38163
When you look back at this time, what will you remember about how you chose to be? Discover Playback wisdom and tools that will help enhance wellness and resiliency in your personal or professional life.
Join Playback Memphis Ensemble Cequita Monique to learn how to use the tools of Playback theatre to trust one another and ourselves.
Cequita Monique will lead us in improvisational movements and exercises that encourages us to ask ourselves, “What’s the relationship between creativity and trust?” We have a saying in Playback: “With trust, anything is possible. Without it, almost nothing at all.” This session will guide you to find out how you are being worthy of others’ trust.
Please note: This is not a performance.
