“Bangladesh makes clothes for everyone, if it wasn’t for us they’d be naked”
Bangladesh, 2017. Four women struggle to survive in the slums around Dhaka’s garments factories. Day-in day-out these mothers, sisters and daughters sweat behind machines, making clothes destined for the glitzy department stores and High Streets of the West. In the face of severe exploitation and poverty can there be a future worth fighting for in a country that clothes us?
“What will happen if we all rise up together, what will you do then? Where will you hide?”
MADE has been developed by Cast’s Associate Artists Target Theatre Company with Bangladeshi writer Ikhtisad Ahmed and has been created out of extensive research conducted in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Here Target Theatre Company met with and interviewed workers in the garments sector of one of the biggest makers of fast fashion for the UK market.
