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, researched by having an actual shirt manufactured in a Chinese factory.
Riffing on our continuing and rising awareness of mass production and vulture capitalism, METIS invite you to play a provocative interactive 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, the show gives audiences a first-hand experience of the sharp end of fast fashion, and will be at the newly opened Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts at the University of Sussex all this week – Tuesday 15 – Friday 18 November, 7.30pm.

Plus, on Wednesday 16 November, there is a post-show conversation about the politics behind World Factory with director Zoe Svendsen.
