World Spirit Theatre produces community theatre which explores integration and the asylum process from the perspective of those experiencing it directly: we aim to challenge institutional and street level prejudice, and celebrate diversity.
World Spirit works with the ‘Forum Theatre’ method, which seeks to directly involve the audience in achieving positive outcomes to the problems that the performers present. Having undertaken training workshops in forum theatre methodology from various experienced practitioners, the group devises, scripts, jokers and performs it’s own plays, incorporating members experiences, frustrations and hopes into each of our productions.
Many of the group’s members have come to Scotland from a diversity of communities and cultures globally, and have direct experience of claiming asylum and ‘integrating’ (with all that this implies) in the UK.
