Globaleyes Synopsis

This contemporary piece of physical theatre deals with issues around globalisation, taking the subjects of the abuse of human rights, poverty, slave labour and the exploitation of power and environmental problems and encouraging us to reconsider the importance of community in today’s ever changing world.

Performed by Chickenshed’s then company members who were joined on stage by 200 Chickenshed students aged 16+, and members of Chickenshed’s adult theatre group, the story weaves a tale of unerring passion for the beauty of life against the cheapening value that society can put on it. The themes within the play still resonate today, some 18 years after it was first performed.

Globaleyes received huge acclaim from national press and a glowing review from Anita Roddick from The Body Shop Foundation when it was first performed in 2002 at both Chickenshed’s own theatre and The Royal Opera House’s Linbury Studio, and subsequently in Edinburgh in 2005.
