Invisible Women: A Mini Festival

Spare Tyre returns with a provocative programme from a range of overlooked women artists and communities.

Bodies, babies, assisted dying, courage, politics, and overcoming challenges are explored through dance, visual art and theatre. 

During our 40th year, this programme celebrates Spare Tyre’s roots in the feminist movement of the 1970s, revealing the hidden stories of the women artists and communities we work with. 

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies fund and is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.


Spare Tyre is a leading participatory arts charity based in London. They’ve spent the last 40 years producing bold and powerful theatre with voiceless communities and individuals that inspires and challenges us all. Spare Tyre currently works creatively with:

adults with learning disabilities
people aged 60+
people with dementia
women who've experienced violence
economically disadvantaged communities.

Spare Tyre are an Associate Ensemble of New Diorama Theatre. / @spare_tyre
