Improv and Performance Actor

Playback Theatre

Mahara was also one of the founding members of Vancouver Playback Theatre. Based on oral storytelling traditions, Playback moves freely between the mythic and the mundane. An audience member sits in the ‘teller’s chair’ where their real-life story is ‘played back’ by the actors. Improvisation, movement and music are used to create fascinating, funny, dramatic and deeply moving stories. Playback, originally from New York, is a form of theatre unlike any other. It changes lives and enriches communities.

Playback currently performs throughout Vancouver and BC. For more info see
