Vital Xposure is a bold, dynamic a disabled-led touring theatre company that promotes hidden voices with extraordinary stories to tell.
Our vision is a fairer world for marginalised artists to become creative leaders, with their work celebrated in the heart of our culture
We create new, innovative performances and projects relevant to and representative of our communities.
We engage audiences with previously hidden stories to broaden understanding of our society and ourselves.
We remove barriers for d/Deaf, disabled and Neurodivergent artists, to increase their skills, confidence, and visibility both nationally and internationally.
Our inclusive disabled-led work brings positive change, through sector leadership, creative collaborations, and intersectional practice.

“Wellspring has taught me to honour my needs, and has given me to confidence not to fit in, but to assert myself.” Nicole Latchana, Wellspring 2021-22 Writer
“A real change in theatre; not just with more disabled narratives or representation, but championing disabled artists to tell whatever stories they want. The potential for change was riveting, but partaking in Wellspring galvanised me even further." Robbie Curran, Wellspring 2021-22 Writer
“Acting was an area of my life I thought I’d never be able to return to. And maybe in ‘mainstream’ theatre I couldn’t. Here there was support to enable me to absolutely go for it, and not to have to ever apologise for what I needed.” Lisette Auton, Actor, ‘Mad Mary’ in Medicine’s Monstrous Daughters
We continue our research into untold stories and hidden voices that deserve justice, and we are committed to presenting these stories to audiences through disability-led theatre.

"Superb performance, meaty subject matter that was expertly and sensitively dramatised."
"A celebration of those who choose to resist, whatever the cost."
"Frightening and thought provoking. Wonderfully accessible."
