PLAYBACK THEATRE IS AN INTERACTIVE THEATER FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
First 100 audience members are welcomed
It is â€œtheatre created through a unique collaboration between performers and audience. Someone tells a story or moment from their life, chooses actors to play the different roles, then watches as their story is immediately given artistic shape and coherence…Playback Theatre honors people’s stories and connects them to each other, creating a deeper sense of community.”
– International Playback Theatre Network
Date: Wednesday, October 8th
Location: Thomas Great Hall
The Social Justice Committee has been working over the summer to craft a set of guidelines and think through the program in its second year at Bryn Mawr. Letters will be going out to possible new and returning participants this week and the committee is looking forward to forming cohorts to begin their social justice journeys together. Our new website is full of information about the pilot, its members and includes links to national and Bryn Mawr news related to social justice issues. Please join us in this year of growth and possibility!
The Social Justice Pilot Program has just completed its founding year and is looking forward to an even more exciting one. This program’s mission is to facilitate personal and community understandings of diversity through genuine communication between groups, informed by multiple versions of history and the present. We operate with the understanding that we “make the road by walking” and have learned over the last year and during this planning summer that more travelers on that road make it all the more exciting, organic, and real. We believe diversity and critical analysis of what that diversity brings in each of our lives is not just a slogan or catch phrase but rather an integral part to a liberal arts education.

Contemporary French choreographer JÃ©rÃ´me Bel and Thai classical dancer Pichet Klunchun unite in this rare, candid encounter between two artists who, while hailing from radically different cultural backgrounds, share humor, honesty, and a superior open-mindedness towards each other. Pichet Klunchun and Myself is a duet, a fascinating exchange of ideas and movement that questions the relationships between performance, foreignness, and cultural exchange.

Slavery was a harsh and very real part of Philadelphia in the 1700s. Many of the Founding Fathers who worshiped in Christ Church owned slaves. An interpretive drama appropriate for all ages features ”Sarah,” a costumed interpreter who relates her daily life as an enslaved African in colonial Philadelphia, along with a guide who provides perspective and historical overview.
The public can see the presentation on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:30 pm at the Christ Church Burial Ground at 5th and Arch Streets or at 2:30 pm in Christ Church at 2nd Street above Market. The burial ground presentation focuses on the Yellow Fever epidemic and the church performance features authentic stories about slaves and slave owners connected to Christ Church. The admission fee at the burial ground is $2 per adult and $1 per student. The church presentations are free.
