In Their Shoes

In Their Shoes is a unique production and workshop that celebrates and promotes unity in diversity and sensitively explores issues around extremism.

The Spots and the Stripes have always hated one another for no real reason other than that they are different. After a particularly heated argument with a Spot, one Stripe is convinced that she must find people who can help her stand up to the Spot. However, as she searches she meets characters who tell her stories from different cultures and religions about how it is possible to get along, despite being different. As she listens, the Stripe is challenged to spend time in her neighbour’s shoes and see a potential friend, instead of an enemy.
