Fittings Multimedia Arts is a disability led national organisation that makes popular theatre and artworks characterised by directness, comedy, music, emotion and immediacy. We work with materials, performers and artists that reflect and celebrate the United Kingdom’s diverse cultures.
We challenge preconceptions of disability led work being either low quality, predominantly issue based and having less artistic value than other 'mainstream' work. We are experimental in our approach and promote a radical dramatic language exploring the ‘aesthetics of access’.
Our work is based on new writing fusing different styles of storytelling - visual and tactile artworks, music, dance, narrative and physical theatre, film, puppetry, sign language and lecture - to make shows based on hidden histories.
Our work is accessible and relevant to audiences from diverse communities, ages and educational backgrounds. It is presented in a variety of settings and media and is created and accompanied by extensive workshop and outreach programmes and digital content.
