Play-back for all
Everyone of the attendant could tell a story to the leader. The four players of the playback theater made their story out of it. The leader asked the teller if she/he could accept the played story or not.
Are these really the members of the registration?
Friday afternoon were planned City tours in smaller groups to see Tallinn from the different viewpoints of nations: Estonians, Germans, Russians, Israelis, Danes, Swedes, Finns etc.
The Tour leaders are Estonian psychodramatists. They talk about their personal and historical stories and they combined this with the story of Tallinn. We learned to see how the psychodramatists felt in their city.
Many different views
