As a nation we’re starting to care more about the ethics behind what we buy. It’s all very well to agree with this in principle, be wowed by the creative companies that are frank and web 2.0 about sharing their stories, but frankly there’s a mockery of standards going on in the land of mass production. The Young Vic bring this to life in their latest production, World Factory. It sews together stories from around the world, connected to items of clothes through the production line. You’re invited to play an unusual game with creators Zoë Svendsen and Simon Daw, put in a position that we wouldn’t normally dwell on. Fed a powerful video and soundtrack, we’re asking what exactly does it feel like to be an ethical factory owner or to put your profits first. What choices would you make?
