Fuel leads the field in independent producing in the UK’s live performance sector. We have created upwards of 180 projects with over 60 artists experienced by more than 800,000 people. We work with brilliant artists to enable them to share their artistic vision. We develop and present an adventurous, playful and significant programme of live, digital, and multi-disciplinary work for a representative audience across the UK and beyond. Our mission is to produce art that exposes our fears, reveals our hopes, and empowers us to change what needs to be changed.
We believe in supporting and stimulating artists and creative teams (on and off stage) to develop their own ideas through provocation and challenge. We have a rich and trusting creative dialogue with all of the theatre makers we work with, and we engage with all aspects of the development of the work. Each relationship is unique, as we try to respond to the needs of each artist individually.
Some of the artists Fuel has worked with include Will Adamsdale, Inua Ellams, Racheal Ofori, Fevered Sleep, Lewis Gibson, Gyre & Gimble, Nick Makoha, Frauke Requardt, David Rosenberg, Andy Smith, Sound&Fury, Heather Agyepong, Tom Stuart, Uninvited Guests and Melanie Wilson.
We decided to join Stage Sight, so we can contribute our learning around recruiting for and working with Black, Asian and other people from ethnic backgrounds in creative, production and stage managers roles, and to learn more about how we can implement new, practical ways to increase representation in offstage roles.
