It is becoming increasingly evident that the range and diversity of professionals interested in theatre and theatrical tech-
niques beyond artistic purposes is growing. Theatre for transformation has entered into our imaginations and in the latest 
gathering in Salamanca there were strong indications that this enchantment with theatre processes for transformation will 
continue to grow. Playback theatre was initially included in our first gathering on Theatre and Society back in 2010 in Grana-
da in a very small way, yet interest in Playback Theatre has grown significantly as with much higher visibility in the recent 
gathering on theatres of transformation. Such persistent interest suggests the need to explore other theatrical references, to 
seek different methodologies, to develop theoretical understandings and technical skills, and ensuring there are diverse sce-
narios for staging. As well as developing the way the public views this work. 
Driving the growth in theatre applications are contemporary objectives such as our search for personal meaning and group 
function (on many levels - physical, cognitive, emotional, and other aspects of participants’ inner worlds), our need to reflect
to bring to awareness latent or "hidden" aspects of personal development (so that we might engage in a process of 
"realizing" these so that we might change or transform), transforming creativity so that there might be liberation from oppres-
sion (multiple contexts), bring empowerment, and preserve the dignity and value of the human being (balancing healthy ego 
levels), and a general humanistic approach that ensures that each viewer is co-producer of the show. 
The term applied theatre, is increasingly used to describe this work which points explicitly to the central importance of con-
text and / or lens within the work. Emerging contexts include community and social context (such as women's associations, 
cultural immigrant, patients and their caregivers/family, prisons, NGO, self development, Social Service Institutions, Health 
Services, citizen participation, intercultural organizations or educational activities etc ...) educational contexts (in schools, 
working with adolescents, prevention activities in schools, and University applications), for pedagogic purposes (defined as 
those areas in which learning or revision of a role is required, outside of the school context, yet with a comprehensive edu-
cational psycho-social component, such as volunteer training, professional development), in clinical settings (in psychother-
apeutic work trying to appeal to different types of patients), and in organisational and business contexts (for deepening or 
improving the relational processes between people, for conflict resolution, and coaching).
