Company of Artists
Spare Tyre’s Company of Artists are the voice of the communities that we work within.
They are skilled, innovative, unique artists who work together to devise and perform theatre to an audience of regular theatregoers, members of their own communities, the wider arts sector and unsuspecting passers-by. The Company use and combine drama, music, film, dance, live art installation, and magic. They create art inspired by their own stories and experiences that challenge prejudice and the perception of their communities.
Currently our Company of Artists includes artists aged 60+ and artists with learning disabilities.
The Company have come together through different paths. We have met many through our Outreach work at day centres or community settings. Some have discovered us through word of mouth; some spotted our adverts in local newspapers or our posters up in Doctor surgeries. No experience was necessary to join just an interest in being creative and performing, and a willingness to build skills.
“Spare Tyre gives me the voice I have always wanted, to shout out what I believe in, and the means of doing it.”
