Social Prescensing Theatre (SPT)

Working with community organisations in Dublin we are testing and refining the use of Social Presencing Theatre in an Irish context, a tool that can create the optimum conditions for social innovation to occur within groups or communities. In brief SPT allows people to play out using physical movement and gesture how they experience the system as it is and as it might evolve. This work is supported by Community Foundation Ireland.
