Antagonism in Playback Theatre - Finding the Courage and Positive Intention in The Shadow

November 30, 2017

" Nobody wants to offend, but everybody wants to do good scene work. You can’t have it both ways.”

 

In this article, I present a typology and model for incorporating powerful, effective antagonists in group improvisation. A good antagonist is "active, one-dimensional, emotionally loaded and connected to their positive intention in relation to the protagonist". I also present specific Playback Theater short and medium forms that accentuate the effect of the antagnoist.
