ViSiBLE is a theatre company dedicated to creating performance work that throws fresh perspectives on later life and living longer.
A key aspect of our identity is creating work collaboratively, drawing on the creativity and talent of Britain’s huge wealth of experienced older actors.
Now that we are living 30 years longer than a century ago, and with a quarter of our population now aged 60+, we are keen to tell stories that match this new reality.
We refuse to accept the predominant narrative of older age as one of decline, aiming instead to present a nuanced, richer narrative about older age.
Our mission therefore is to create exciting, contemporary work that features older people with lives as complex and interesting as any other group of people across the age spectrum - older people who refuse to be invisible.
