A Quick Chat with… Pacitti Company!

Robert Pacitti is creator of the SPILL Festival of Performance and has spent over two decades producing award-winning collaborative work with Pacitti Company.

Why is collaborative work so important?
I believe in the power of people working together to make a difference. I believe that communities coming together with a shared focus can create real change.

Why is art so good for discussing social issues?
Well-made art can ask us to look at and think about the world in new ways. Artists in the field of performance often make very political art… simply because they have something urgent yet considered to say.

What will new festival SPILL bring to local performance?
I hope it can ignite some inspiration locally. There’s definitely a head of steam building here right now and I am genuinely excited about what’s happening. You can almost smell it in the air. But whilst I know there is loads of talent in Ipswich, we don’t really have a focus for kick-ass, high-visibility experimental arts. 

So SPILL arrives at a really great time, in all its blood, guts and glory. It’s going to be a good one, my friends, and it’s going to be fierce.

SPILL Festival of Performance launches in Ipswich on October 31.
