Playback Theatre draws on the traditional use of story telling in groups. Participants are encouraged to take part in the interactive process with the actors. Through improvised techniques, the players immediately recreate the experiences of the group members. These moments may involve issues of conflict, decision making and personal discovery. By watching their reality mirrored back, it allows participants the opportunity for transformation and change in order to realise their full potential.

Therefore, Random Acts can create:

    The opportunity to explore future goals and strategies.

    The chance for self and group reflection.

    Tools to empower the development of communication and leadership skills.

    The possibility for differences to be celebrated.

    The experience of community and the development of relationships.

    Consultation around group concerns.

    Effective change through creativity.

This can be offered in a variety of ways:
