Improve and playback
The therapeutic theater course focuses on the Playback Theater Approach - improvisational theater composed of life stories, and the therapeutic space between this approach and psychodrama.
The course teaches and demonstrates how therapeutic theater allows the individual to expand their perspectives of experiences in life.
It provides an opportunity for healing and transformation, and for choosing a course of action which will lead to more happiness and health. This process is supported and enhanced by the dramatic space, the power of the stage and the power of the group.
