Spike Theatre (“Spike”) was established in 1997 to create accessible, engaging and visually exciting work that draws upon physical disciplines such as mime, acrobatics, clowning and strong characterisation. Spike aims to make its performances accessible to all members of the public regardless of age, race, disability, gender, sexual orientation or social background. Our work has a style that appeals to diverse audiences. We work in a wide range of performance situations, indoor and outdoor, traditional and non-traditional, which also encourages new audiences to attend.
From the very outset the company has used theatre arts in an educational context and we now offer a wide range of education packages. Our educational workshops are attended by groups of all ages and are targeted at schools, colleges, community groups and others. We work in collaboration with local authority initiatives as well as through collaborations with community venues when productions are on tour.
