Spect-Act Festival

Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st May 2017, entry by donation

Spect-Act is a network of Theatre of the Oppressed Companies in Edinburgh supported by Active Inquiry. The techniques of the Theatre of the Oppressed blur the lines between actor and audience and offer a space for dialogue, solidarity and building knowledge.

Exploring issues of addiction, mental health, domestic violence and gender inequality and the themes of oppression, misuse of power and solidarity, Active Inquiry invites you to become part of this network for the weekend and take part in the debates and dialogues. 

Come and see performances from Active Inquiry and the Shakti, Alma and Bethany Theatre Companies. As well as some amazing theatre you can eat lunch from the Drill Hall cafe, hear some live music, contribute to our exhibition and much more!
