Artists – Access All Areas


Access All Areas’ Performance Company is made up of seventeen Associate Artists who identify as learning disabled, autistic, or neurodiverse. These artists are the backbone of all the work we make, all the consultancy we run, and all the training and outreach programmes we deliver.

In our Performance Company, we create new live and digital productions to disrupt misperceptions about learning disabled and autistic experience, often coproducing with partners including The Royal Court, dreamthinkspeak, and Paines Plough. Our most recent production was unReal City, coproduced with dreamthinkspeak, at Brighton Dome in 2022.

Our Associate Artists also trial their own individual creative ideas through our Performance Company, with R&D periods and co productions enabling ideas to flourish. In recent years we’ve commissioned and coproduced Charlene Salter’s The Interrogation, Not Your Circus Dogs’ Not F**kin’ Sorry, and Cian Binchy’s The Misfit Analysis.
