About SPID THEATRE COMPANY (Kensington & Chelsea)

At S.P.I.D Theatre We were inspired by creating stories weaving text with film, dance, performance art, puppetry and new music, and by responding to ‘found’, non-traditional spaces. Our work has always been designed to attract audiences otherwise, alienated by traditionally-staged theatre, especially the young.
We are a charity specialising in high quality community theatre on council estates, whose remit is to advance education by the promotion of the arts, citizenship and community development.
About half of our staff and participants are local, but we also have a National profile in terms of touring UK estates, getting estate residents on the news and securing rave reviews in papers like the Guardian. Both locally and Nationally, we advocate social housing.
