What is Playback Theatre?

Playback Theatre is a unique form of interactive theatre enabling audiences to tell their stories.


Playback Theatre is a safe way of exploring internal thought processes and using the arts to express and communicate.


People from the audience are invited to share moments from their lives.


They then see them being brought to life as the company immediately recreates the essence of their story using voice, movement, dance, music and song.

At our last public performance Breathing Fire was pleased to donate income from our box office to the Ebola affected African countries. £150 was sent to Doctors Without Borders. For more about what they do please see:
