XI International Playback Theater Camp

13-20 August 2023

Izmir, Turkey, ART Residence of Tiyatro Medresesi

It’s like falling into a rabbit hole: first you fly with a whistling in your ears, faces and events pass by, and then the Wonders begin.

In fact, it’s a week of living in another country in a unique environment: creative people from different parts of the globe come together to exchange experience and create something new together. Every day offers workshops from the best trainers, who will share their vast store of playback knowledge with you.

Our Camp intelligently combines hours of intensive training with rest, games, the sea, and delicious dinners. All of this contributes to boosting your professional skills: the learning potential of what one can do with their body, voice, and partners on stage; how to build interaction; how to go deeper and draw ideas from the limitless source of inspiration within each of us- and much more.

You’ll remember Playback Camp forever and it will absolutely change your life… it will transform you completely and, in return, the development of amazing new features. You will see.It’s a field where we can meet and create open dialogue and a microcosm of the world we live in.
A multicultural and intersectional crossroad of the Global Playback Theater community.
Together, we can grow in our interconnection and examine our hearts for who we really are… to connect our values with what we do and co-create.
Meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds is an enriching experience and a chance for us to grow. From knowing comes care and from care comes change.
Being together- to exchange within our global community- is the most powerful place for us to be. Anastasia Vorobyeva
Founder of the annual project: International Playback Theatre Camp

And now the details

International Playback Camp exists since 2012 and has already managed to stick flags on the map of the world in Crimea, Silver Lake (Serbia), Dyuni (Bulgaria) and Nesvizh Castle (Belarus). In the summer of 2022 (from the 14th to the 21th of August) the 10th annual camp will be held — this time in Izmir, Turkey.

The creator and inspirer of the International Playback Camp is Anastasia Vorobyova.

Every year our Camp becomes more and more international. Now participants from more than 17 countries coming every year.

The main goal of this event is to improve the qualification of playback actors from all over the world and to unite the world community, namely the creation of an especial atmosphere where people support and accept each other. It is a mix of cultures and nationalities, a chorus of dozens different languages, where every person will be heard thanks to an open dialogue and open hearts.

Camp has a certain theme around which the work is built — for example, the Camp 2018 was devoted to the topic «Being connected», and there were touched upon such important aspects as «Society and I», a sense of belonging and loneliness, etc.

Theme of the Camp 2022 in progress. We are choosing a theme every year based on what is essential to explore now for our global playback community.

Workshops are conducted in English.

A few words about the schedule: you will have 2 workshops (of 3 hours each) per day with breaks for food and a plunge into a pool, and in the evening creative activity will take place.

During the Camp you will have 1 day off, when you can go on an excursion or release your inner seal and spend a relaxing day at the picturesque meadows and hills. To fix the effect of trainings, there will be 1 performance from the coaches, one performance-jam for everybody with a topic chosen by the participants themselves, and the final overall big performance at the end of the Camp. All week long you will sweat and cry; laugh and run on the ceiling; cuddle with people and enjoy moments of solitude; sleep like a log, and not close your eyes until dawn; grow as an actor and a person.

Camp is a parallel universe where the atmosphere of goodness and magic reigns. Here holes in the universe and cracks in the heart are patched, friends are found and even families are created. And here you can drink wine in a very good company, watching the setting sun that sinks behind mountains.

Are you still not with us?
