"I want the Spectator to take on the role of Actor and invade the Character and the Stage. I want them to occupy their own space and offer solutions" Augusto Boal

Spect-Act is a two-year project with the goal of developing a network of Theatre of the Oppressed companies in Edinburgh. The techniques of the Theatre of the Oppressed blur the lines between actor and audience and offer a space for dialogue and building knowledge.

Active Inquiry has been working with groups from The Bethany Trust, Shakti Women's Aid and The Alma Project to create unique pieces of theatre exploring issues of relevance to the participants.

Thank you to everyone who came along to our public event on 21st May.

The podcast from this event is now available. For more information about getting involved with Spect-Act please contact us.
