Visible Theatre Ensemble Ltd

VISIBLE is the only UK performing arts company entirely dedicated to creating work with and about older people. We aim to represent older people in ways that challenge negative and outdated notions of what it is to be ‘older’ in today’s world. We do this through our mainstream theatre work, and also through documentary work on stage and film exploring themes such as coping with cancer, bereavement, loneliness, loss of identity, transitions into later life, and the challenges of carers.

Founded 2013
