Friendly Rewinders Playback Theatre is a dedicated ensemble of Sidwell Friends Upper School actors who invite the audience to share personal stories. The performers dramatize what they hear in brief “fluid sculptures,” accompanied by live music. Then, the “conductor” of the performance invites someone to tell a longer story. An audience member comes up to the stage and is interviewed. The only rule is that the story told must be the personal experience of the storyteller. The actors and musicians listen carefully, the conductor shapes the story, and the enactment follows without planning or discussion. At its best, the “playback” reaches into the story behind the story, serving the storyteller by adding insight and art to what has been shared.
