What's New from the Board

Board Meeting in Bangalore

23 Jul 2014

During our board meeting in Bangalore we spent an intense 4 days together discussing our work for the international Playback Theatre community. Meeting face to face helped us re-energise and find new direction. Together we reviewed the International Playback Theatre Network’s vision. We identified in what ways the IPTN offers something unique and what is most needed by the changing global Playback community that we are able to provide. We used this material to build a new vision. Here it is:


The IPTN provides an independent, inclusive global platform that strengthens Playback Theatre practice through connection and mutual influence.

 

After this, we reviewed the roles and tasks within the IPTN Board and clarified what the IPTN most needs as we move in the future. Next to President, Secretary and Treasurer, we kept hold of Interplay Liaison (now renamed IPTN Journal Liaison) and created the following new roles: Public Relations, Website/Marketing and Business Development/Membership Services.
 

Jürgen Schoo
I started playback Theatre in 1998 with a company in Cologne: Lamäng Kölner Playback Theater.

Since 2001 I am a member of Playback Theater Berlin (www.playback-theater-berlin.de).
I joined International Conferences in York (1999), Sao Paulo (2007) and Frankfurt (2011) and the European Conferences in Le Diben (2005), Longiano (2006) and Andreevka (2009).

In 2001 I did the practitioner course in Findhorn with Jo Salas and Veronica Needa.
2007 I joined IPTN-Board and have been elected as IPTN-President in 2011

We had a wonderful time in Tel Aviv with the Israel Playback Ensemble in 2012.
