Places Where I Belong: A Playback Theatre performance

February 29, 2024
Olympia Family Theater, OYAA - Olympia Youth Artspace Alliance, 612 4th Ave E., Olympia


Join Brave Practice Playback Theatre Collective for a conversation through storytelling and theatre. Come experience the magic of Playback Theatre with Window Seat’s team of theatre artists. Share stories and see them played back artistically on the spot. What does “access-for-all” mean? When are moments and experiences in your life of finding places of belonging? While the world is fraught with scarcity and division, how can we root ourselves more deeply in community and collaboration? Let’s have a dialog about shared community spaces.

All ages. Please register. Tickets also at the door.
