Join us for an evening of listening and sharing through theatre. Pittsburgh Playback Theatre will be performing your stories at the Squirrel Hill Library to commemorate the one year anniversary of the shooting at Tree of Life * Or L’Simcha, Dor Hadash and New Light. Marking the passage of time is important in healing and building community resiliency. While Pittsburgh and Squirrel Hill have been showered with love and support from around the world in the wake of the horrific events of 10/27/18, where are we one year later?
This event is open to community members of all ages. We especially want to welcome teens and adults. Participants are not required to share.
About Pittsburgh Playback Theatre:
Playback Theatre is a form of improvisational storytelling, based on feelings and stories shared by audience members. This art form is used in educational, therapeutic, social change, and arts settings with companies on seven continents. Playback Theatre is about creating dialogue and connection through the telling, witnessing, and honoring of our life experiences, based on the principle that every story deserves to be listened to with an open ear and an open heart. We believe that listening to the stories of our community is crucial as we strive towards creating a world of compassion and inclusivity. Playback Theatre strives to bridge the divide between art and social change by providing opportunities for reflection, and empathic connection. We attempt to honor individuals’ differences while celebrating our commonalities.
