Lena Dobrowolska & Teo Ormond-Skeaping, The Endurance of Altrusim, 2015

World Factory
The Young Vic Theatre, London
11 – 30 May 2015

Made in China.
Sold in Britain.
Worn by you.

From the factory floor to the catwalk, from Shanghai to London, World Factory weaves together stories of people connected by the global textile industry.

Riffing on our awareness of mass production and vulture capitalism, Zoƫ Svendsen and Simon Daw invite you to play a provocative game. Which card will you draw? Will you be an ethical factory owner? Or will profits always come first? In the rag trade, can anyone ever really win?

Featuring stunning video and a powerful score, World Factory is a thought-provoking investigation of fast fashion.
