A work in progress sharing as Spare Tyre collaborates with a small group of Deaf, disabled and non-disabled artists, in response to the title 'Freedom of Movement'.

Spare Tyre brings its blend of creative anarchy and support to create a safe, creative space, that starts from the point of inclusion. In these days of identity, individual definition and collective action, what does it mean to move freely as yourself and together as a movement?.

Spare Tyre will  be collaborating with a small group of Deaf, disabled and non-disabled artists over the three days of Liberty Festival 2022, responding to contemporary questions, informed by the passions, skills, minds and bodies of the group. They will then open the physical and online space to audiences to join them in experimentation, play and discussion about what movement, change and transformation mean to you.

Supported by Garfield Weston Foundation and Arts Council England

About Spare Tyre

Spare Tyre is one of the UK’s leading participatory theatre arts companies based at the Albany,  touring nationally and online. Founded in the punk era, as a female and artist-led company, they originate projects with, by and for people from groups under-represented in arts.

Proudly defying box-ticking, they change genre and style to make our work fit the people not the other way round. They work with everyday artists alongside professional and emerging artists throughout their creative process, from idea to performance.

Spare Tyre are intersectional by nature, anti-racist, inclusive, experimental and planet-loving by choice.
