Spatfeather is an inclusive ensemble of artists and theatre-makers. Calling on song-led performance traditions and an irreverent blend of influences, we create work that engages unheard voices and celebrates the serendipity of collaboration.
Following up on successful national and international runs of The Liberation of Colette Simple, we are in the early stages of devising inclusive new work for 2017. Follow the latest updates on our blog.
Stand By Me is Spatfeather's flagship community project. It is an inclusive initiative bringing together adults with learning disabilities and the artistic community to create diverse and collaborative art works and performances.
In conjunction with the University of Brighton, company founder Nathalie Carrington is currently undertaking research exploring how inclusive practice can impact theatre as a training and communal activity.
