Reflections on the Year through Playback Theatre

December 17, 2022, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT
Festival Rehearsal Hall, House of Charm
Balboa Park

Join us for a playful and nourishing morning as we engage in storytelling, embodiment, and reflection all through the inclusive lens of Playback Theatre.  Are there life moments and stories from the year that you want to elevate or celebrate in a safe and thoughtful environment? In this workshop, you will be both storyteller and player, but most importantly you will leave feeling like a connected community member.  This workshop promises to be a gentle and powerful way to mark the last month of 2022.
