Premiere of Theatre of Neighbours on TUES, FEB 12!!

Film Director, Brad Leitch, is excited to present the documentary, Theatre of Neighbours, a film about the work of Winnipeg’s Red Threads of Peace Playback Theatre troupe. 

In this film, we follow a group of actors who listen to the stories of their audience and perform them back live on the spot. While practicing and developing skills in listening and acting in order to honour another person’s real life story, the troupe come face to face with their own stories including difficult experiences of loss, fear, and loneliness. This dedicated group of neighbours take part in a unique form of improv that has been described as both a powerful art form and personally meaningful for actors and audience alike. By connecting to and performing the stories of others they are brought closer to their own experiences and because of that encounter all kinds of opportunities, insights
and life lessons. 

This modest film production presents an unassuming but remarkable story of the power of human connection through local storytelling and theatre and reveals the art of what it takes to deeply see, hear and play back the story of your neighbour.

We hope you will join us at Eckhardt-Grammate Hall (3rd floor) at the University of Winnipeg (515 Portage Ave.) for the world premiere of Theatre of Neighbours on Tuesday, February 12th!
