"To know and to transform - that is our goal" Augusto Boal

WELCOME!

We are an arts company based in Leith, Edinburgh committed to creating exciting new theatre and arts projects with and for communities. We are particularly interested in the work of Augusto Boal and the Theatre of the Oppressed.

ACTive INquiry enables grassroots communities to make and use excellent theatre as a catalyst to uncover and challenge injustice.

We believe in a Scotland in which grassroots communities engage with the arts and the democratic process, contribute to change which is both necessary and possible, and build a more just society.

“A fascinating insight into how theatre can be used to influence community activism and promote positive change.” Audience member, SPACE
