August 12th – 13th – (2 Days)
Location: Bulgaria

Being a conductor in Playback Theatre requires a variety of skills, all at the same time. What do we need to pay attention to? How do we juggle the conducting tasks of engaging the audience and guiding the actors? How do we shape a series of questions to effectively warm the audience up to telling stories? How do we awaken our conductor’s brain – attuning to the heart of each story and also recognizing the social dimension of the performance context and the stories? How do we find our own conducting style and work with our strengths? In this dynamic and informative workshop, we will dive deep into conducting practice through games, exercises, and discussion. We’ll build our conducting muscles, hone our awareness of the social dimension and the possibilities it opens, and gain insights into this rewarding and complex role.
