About the association

תיאטרון פלייבק החבר׳ה מאיכילוב


The Playback Theater Group "The Guys from Ichilov"

The group was founded in 2003  And developed into one of the most professional and leading bands in the country.

The group consists of 15 actors and musicians - playback theater artists, facilitators and creators.  

The origin of the special name is in the band's mythological rehearsal room, which was located in the Ichilov Hospital complex.

Over the years, the group has become a registered non-profit organization that has regretted its use of playback theater as a tool for creating dialogue, empowerment and community action.

Our goals

A. Improving the professionalism of educators, therapists and medicine through tools of theater and improvisation  

B. Promoting underprivileged populations

third. Development of the field of playback theater in Israel and around the world

Our social impact in numbers

Therapists and community members


People in restrictive living circumstances won an intimate volunteer show as part of the Big Wednesday venture


Graduates completed courses at the association's playback theater


In addition to classic playback shows , we also offer shows of improvisations , simulations , custom-built shows for a client from specific pre-delivered materials-  Content development , design thinking processes , tools for developing creativity , workshops and personal accompaniment for standing in front of an audience , a combination of forum theater, workshops and professional courses in improvisation and playback theater.

We listen to the customer's needs and the goals of the event and together we choose the most appropriate tool for achieving the goals.  

We choose a tool that will give the maximum added value. We do not consider our work as 'decoration' but  

As having the power to profoundly and positively influence the participants' experience, their learning process, the quality of the discussion and its outcomes. We know that the impact of work does not end when we leave an event, it continues to resonate and affect reality even long after.
