This is particularly heart warming for us as teachers, as Daria Toschi is one of our recent graduates from the SPT UK Practitioner's Certificate Course, and she has put everything into practice indeed! HERE is the review from an audience member.
Hosted by the Boys and Girls Clubs Association in Hong Kong, this event brought 200+ people together from Australia, mainland China, Hong Kong, Korea, Macau, New Zealand, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, UK and USA. The first Gathering of Playbackers in Asia was hosted in 2006 by Singapore. Taiwan hosted the second gathering in 2009. This event in Hong Kong was long overdue and hugely welcomed by all participants. There were two-day pre- and post-conference training workshops and a full-on three-day conference with an outing for participants to a variety of places/social contexts in Hong Kong where Playback Theatre is being practised by a wide range of participants. Thank you Eddie Yu, the BGCA team, and all the extraordinary volunteers who took care of us so well.
