dc.description.abstractThis study investigates the outcomes of adapting Bertolt Brecht's 'Lehrstücke' within a Spoken Word form to explore both sides of a bilateral political decision, this report analyses and reflects upon a workshop exploration of this process. The process of this research involved combining the Spoken Word form with Brecht's text He Who Says Yes/He Who Says No to encourage the participants of the study to consider the importance of seeking balanced information about the 2014 Scottish Referendum. The workshops created an environment in which the participants could lead their own learning experience, encouraging them to consider the importance of partaking in societal decisions. Using the text He Who Said Yes/He Who Said No allowed for the participants to weigh up the pros and cons of both of the protagonist's decisions. The use of Spoken Word Art allowed for the participants to adapt the text within a contemporary form whilst keeping the writing within a traditional style, allowing for the participants to engage well with the text whilst still being able to look at it from an objective point of view. The feedback from the participants of this study suggest that the study proved successful in facilitating a desire to inform themselves about the 2012 Referendum with balanced and non-partisan information.
