During our sessions we will explore different techniques from the field of Therapeutic Playback Theatre. The participants will witness their own personal content processed into a theatrical event and also participate in the processing of another's personal content in a different theatrical event. This emphasizes the personal experience enactment as meaningful for both the participant who tells his story and for the entire group. This enables the participants to reflect upon their life events in new ways.
In Therapeutic Playback Theatre one can dive into imaginary worlds and also find universal common ground.

Doing so presents life gives life a sense of as an active creation for the active man, enabling him to live with the feeling of autonomy and enhanced control.
