Motus Theater September Performances
On Saturday, September 10th, we hope to see you at our Power Playback performance in Boulder at the Dairy Arts Center. At this special adventure of improvisational theater, you have the opportunity to share a short reflection or a story, and then watch professional improv actors enact YOUR story on the spot using movement, music, and dramatic spoken word.
The stories may be funny or sad; memories from long ago or yesterday. The audience and performers co-create a theater event whose subject is the life experiences of the people attending the show.
Motus calls these performances “Power Playback Theater,” because there is power within our stories and our truths. Stories are how we share our human adventure – the comedy, tragedy, and resilience of life’s journey.
Please tell your friends who have not been to a Power Playback performance about this opportunity.
