Our Performances

“The world is a slightly better place for having improvisation in it than it was before. There’s something about it that says something positive about the human spirit, that a bunch of people can get together and by following a few simple traffic rules can create art and can entertain an audience and can thrill and exalt each other.” Del Close, American Actor

We love improvisation, we love performing and we love hearing your stories.

In the spontaneity of improvisation, we move away from the ordinary and the mundane and encounter the beauty of the unexpected. Without any time to plan, our ensemble weaves your tales into theatrical narrative using movement, music, text, lighting and chorus.

Our skilled performers and facilitators gather your stories, ideas, moments and life experiences and play them back to you to share a new perspective on life.

We lift the layers of your story out of the literal and into the metaphorical, creating heart-warming and authentic theatre. Our performances will leave you utterly enthralled, beautifully entertained and more deeply connected to each other.

Come along to one of our performances to see what our unique style of storytelling theatre is all about. We perform at The Giant Dwarf in Redfern and other unique venues around Sydney.

“The Playback Sydney ensemble are pure entertainment and real reflection. They illuminate your insight and ignite your imagination. It’s about an authentic connection between the audience and the actors. You’ll love it.” Audience Member
