“Whatever you want to be Playback Theatre gives you that skill … Dare to be human”
Our third guest, Oluwadamilola Apotieri-Abdulai, joins us from another country and continent: Nigeria in Westafrica. Damilola is Nigeria’s first Applied Drama and Playback Theatre practitioner. In our conversation, he shares how he transforms lives with the power of theater. He creates theatrical adventures in unconventional spaces and with people from all walks of life. In this process of social transformation, he builds bridges and opportunities nationally and internationally. For him, nature is an integral part of the creative process. As a theatre artist, he experiences and observes nature so that he can embody it on stage.
As always, this episode includes an improvised interlude. We try ourselves in Playback theatre and by chance exemplify how nature inspires our life stories.
“My journey mostly is like a learning journey, like a learning experience. What works? What can I bring back home?”
