Collective Encounters present "In Our Times"

Collective Encounters

Collective Encounters Liverpool



Collective Encounters is a professional arts organisation specialising in theatre for social change through collaborative practice. The company use theatre to engage those on the margins of society, telling untold stories and tackling the local, national and international concerns of our time.

In Our Times brings our whole Collective Encounters company together to perform a medley provocation, performance and participation, exploring the realities of living in an unequal society, and challenges us all to consider other ways of living.

Collective Encounters are back and to celebrate the company's 15th Birthday.

In the 5 years since the last "In Our Times" the world has changed in ways no-one could have predicted. Britain is hurtling towards Brexit, the far-right are seemingly on the rise and the gap between the rich and the poor is getting wider and wider. On the other hand, the resistance movement is getting stronger, global peaceful protests are having world-changing effects, online campaigns such as #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter are changing the way people engage in protest and bringing important issues into the mainstream and it seems more people are realising the inadequacies of a capitalist system in the 21st Century.
