BREAKTHROUGHS to be Presented by NY Queer Playback Theater

Produced by Alight Theater Guild, NY Queer Playback Theater will present a virtual, interactive playback performance to share and celebrate personal stories of "Breakthroughs" on Saturday, May 8th at 1:30pm and 7:30pm EDT over zoom.

During the performance the audience will be invited to tell stories from their lives, then the story will be "played back" with facilitation, improvisational forms, and music by our Ensemble, around the theme of "Breakthroughs". Topics may include:

-Discoveries we have made in our lives

-Breaking through walls of isolation and/or anxiety

-Big life changes made throughout this pandemic

-Dismantling the barriers to equity, empowerment, and social justice

-What it's like to be stuck in a loop and needing a breakthrough
