Online Playback performances by Playback Psi (GR)
When theatres were shut down, we found ourselves at the beginning of a long discussion.
When we were forced to leave our stage, we began rehearsing at home.
When the footlights switched off, we turned on the cameras.
And now we are inviting you to our online playback performance on ZOOM.
Join us through its mosaic of tiles to new stories, thoughts, experiences and dreams.
