Practicing with Playback

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.

Each session will be led by a Playback Memphis Ensemble member and explore a foundational attitude integral to our Playback practice through a brief experiential activity followed by shared reflection.

Limited space is available per session. All sessions will take place at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center’s SAC Building, in the first floor auditorium, at 800 Madison Avenue.

2023 Sessions

Non-Judging

Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023, 11:45am to 1pm

Led by Ensemble Member Holly Lau

Join Playback Memphis Ensemble Member Holly Lau to learn how to use the tools of Playback theatre to silence our inner critic. In our daily lives, it can be difficult to not have an opinion about everything and everyone we encounter. Judgment is everywhere. However, can we suspend judgment at times? Can we see that our opinions are often just products of a habit that we don’t have to reinforce? We’ll answer these questions, and more, in this workshop. We will also consider how we can approach problems we encounter without judgment. You will be led in brief exploratory activities and have the opportunity to participate in reflections about what you learned. About the facilitator >
