More information

As we age, some people only see lines and grey hair rather than the stories, feelings, beliefs and experiences that make us who we are. Join Meaningful Ageing Australia with Red Thread Stories in a unique exploration of ageing using Playback Theatre.

In a Playback performance, the audience’s stories and experiences are the content of the show. Through dialogue with a skilled playback facilitator, individuals share perspectives, ideas, moments and events from their lives and they are ‘played back’ by the actors and musician, whilst the rest of the audience watches and listens.

This powerful improvised theatre show is part of Meaningful Ageing Australia’s national See me. Know me. campaign. The event also includes learning more about the campaign, and opportunities for you to share your perspectives on ageing in a range of ways. Refreshment are included.

This event has been subsidised by the Commonwealth Department of Health and is part of Queensland’s Seniors Week program.
