In the Course of Playback Theatre´s Theatricality
Kočner, Karel ; Vyskočil, Ivan (advisor) ; Malaníková, Hana (referee)
Playback theatre (abbreviated below as PT) was developed by Jonathan Fox and his wife Jo Salas in 1975. The Original Playback Theatre Company was established in the same year. Since that time, the PT has been practiced in over 50 countries all over the world. PT is improvisational theatre approach, in which is never known how the performance will look like and how it will be fulfilled. PT enforce learning to spontaneity of expression in the code of conscious inspired creative developing of unknown situation and existing in it on the stage in the same way as during Acting with the Inner Partner(s) lessons. PT performances are developed in certain structure and have stable course. That is how PT is enforced as ritual scheme, which has purgative ability and artistic power able to gather people together and teach them reciprocity, sharing and coexistence. Basic principal of PT is storytelling of private stories, events or life experiences as emotions, fantasies, dreams or ideas and sharing them by all participating. These are thereupon improvisationally played back to so called teller by a group of actors on the stage. That is how those stories are upraised on a higher level of theatre pieces. Whether is story anyhow simple, difficult, deep, trivial, lightweight or serious, it must be always foremost and it also must be played from this point of view. It is not purpose to make fun primarily with it, but to use collective moment, in which we learn to listen one to another. We also learn to respect others and their personal experiences and their understanding the world. PT actors are not in the center of public attention as during classical type of theatre performances, but they serve straightly to audience´s stories. They enact them with humility and respect with purpose of feast event experience. This discipline interests me by its universality of being used in different types of environment, by its richness of inspiration, by its education potentiality and by its artistic value.
