Brave Practice Playback Theatre Collective

Brave Practice creates Spaces that Spark

Join us December 17th, 2021, 6pm @ Lamplighters in downtown Olympia.

Join Window Seat for an evening of interactive storytelling with Brave Practice Playback Theatre Collective. Help us spark conversation, connection, and possibility for change.


Window Seat invites you to an evening of interactive storytelling with Brave Practice. We will reflect on the theme “Spaces that Spark,” connect in community, share stories, and enjoy light refreshments. Playback Theatre is an original form of interactive and improvisational theatre where audience members are invited to tell true stories from their lives and performers enact those stories on the spot using music, dialogue, metaphor, and movement. Brave Practice is a community engagement program of Window Seat that aims to be a resource for storytelling and deep listening. At our performances and workshops, members of our community can connect authentically in meaningful ways through art, empathy, and witnessing one another’s truth; we create spaces where we can explore what it means to be human, celebrate our differences, and reflect on our shared past, present, and future.

This event is part of Window Seat Media’s “Spaces that Spark” community-centered fundraiser series. Donations at the time of registration and during the event will support future community oral history and storytelling in the South Sound. Learn more about our campaign here.

Covid safety statement and compliance plan: This is a registration-only event and we are keeping our capacity low to about 30 guests. We will serve light refreshments. We ask that audience members remain masked when not eating and drinking and either provide proof of vaccination or have proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours. You can email these ahead of time to or bring them with you to show at the event. Performers are all vaccinated and will (most likely) NOT be masked during the performance. We cannot admit guests who have not provided the requested information. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe.

Olympia Lamplighters is a local non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping local artists of all genres in supporting themselves with their art and to tear down the barriers between artists and non-artists to help create a community where everyone inspires each other. We have a co-working space and individual desks with an art gallery, recording room, and stage area, in addition to having art classes, dances, music shows, and drag shows. We are located at 211 4th Ave E in Downtown Olympia.

Olympia Lamplighters has free nights on all Tuesdays to allow people to come in and practice their art. In addition we also have many different classes that are ramping up, including our weekly Figure Drawing class, as well as dances. One of these dances is a donation only LGBTQ+ dance the first Saturday of every month. We are also in the process of starting up a monthly drag show on the 2nd Saturdays of every month and are planning on having some drag classes as well.

Inside Olympia Lamplighters we have a recording booth for any type of audio recording, including voice acting, recording family histories, musical recordings and podcasts. We also have the stage where we have had a live music show and are planning more.
