Pacitti Company was formed in 1990 to enable the vision and practice of artist Robert Pacitti. Drawing on a background of punk, activism, fine art and club land, Pacitti Company spent 20 years making and presenting award winning international group and solo performance works for a range of theatre, gallery and site-specific spaces worldwide.
In 2007 Robert created the SPILL Festival of Performance (SPILL), deliberately forcing a large-scale, high visibility sustainable shift in the UK cultural landscape for experimental live work. SPILL was born through being in service to other makers, and serving audiences the very best work from across the country and around the world. SPILL is now recognised worldwide as a significant artist-led festival of uncompromising live work. The festival became annual in 2011, alternating between London and Ipswich. It now takes place every two years, in Ipswich.
