Actions and Detail Panel

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.
We have built this strong network over the past two years, exploring issues of addiction, mental health, domestic violence and gender inequality and the themes of oppression, misuse of power and solidarity.
We want you to become part of this network for the weekend and join us in the debates and dialogues that we have started together.
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 Out of the Blue cafe, hear some live music, contribute to our exhibition and much more!
