*Playback Theater

Playback Theater is a time for conference participants to offer personal stories and then witness them come to life in improvised music, movement, and dialogue. Inside Out Playback Theater offers a venue for students who have studied internationally to share their stories of discovery and culture-shock and to ease re-entry stress. Connections between participants are forged as stories are played back. This session will be facilitated by Roger Foster and Heidi Winters Vogel.
