#PULSE15 – World Factory

No performance info available


A brunch-time discussion of the world behind the labels on our clothes - and how to make theatre about it.

Presented by METIS

Join the World Factory team, both live and virtual, for a brunch-time discussion of the world behind the labels on our clothes - and how to make theatre about it. World Factory is a participatory show that invites audiences to play a scenario-based card game in which they ‘run' a clothing factory in China: by putting the audience at the heart of the moral conflicts at the heart of consumer capitalism, the show explores a new form of political theatre. Originally developed as part of Pulse Festival 2013 and 2014, World Factory will already have premiered on the New Wolsey Theatre main stage just before Pulse 2015 - and will be showing in London at the Young Vic during Pulse Festival itself.

If you saw the show, or even if you didn’t, come and discuss with us what ways theatre can address the world we live in today.
