Connecting Lives

Funded by The City of Edinburgh Council, this project involves us bringing together the three Community Companies for the Spect-Act Network to explore how the separate issues affecting these groups can be brought together to create a unique piece of theatre for performances in December 2017. Keep checking this page for more information.


This project brings together Theatre of the Oppressed organisations working in Scotland, Poland, Italy and Slovenia to explore and develop Legislative Theatre and how it can be applied in different countries and contexts throughout Europe today. Keep checking this page for more information on how the project develops.


This on-going project in partnership with The Thistle Foundation has now been funded by the Scottish Government for three years with the aim of rolling the programme out across Scotland. Working in schools across Edinburgh and Midlothian this project uses drama work with disabled young people to explore thoughts, emotions, concerns, opportunities and options in the transition from school.


This project brings together Theatre of the Oppressed companies from across Europe for training and sharing of practice. We have also developed an International Play, Hotel Europa [download pdf booklet], which explores the European crisis and the difficulty of challenging neo-liberal capitalism from inside the system. After a successful run as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2016, the next performance of Hotel Europa will be in Barcelona in March 2017.
