An(dre)a Spisto makes a mish mash of live theatre, art buffoonery, comedic interventions, filmed and live filmed performance with a current view into entomology, media and its relationship to perspectives as a queer, neurodiverse, Venezuelan immigrant. Trained at Lispa (Art-Haus Berlin) in Lecoq and embodied practices with a focus on clown through mask. Dre’s work has been described by critics as genre-smashing, surreal, gentle and exuberant. 


Dre’s solo work is based on playful autobiographical exploration through physical masks (characters) that delve into the corners of the psyche. Working with thematic vignettes, live improvisation, movement, music and film projection.


 Dre’s Work includes 50 Ways To Kill A Slug, El Dizzy Beast (Nominated for the Filipa Braganca award), Butch Princesa (Nominated for Best Cabaret, Best Performance Artist and Best Theatre show) Tylor and Vincent:Pussy and Money, Tylor and Vincent: Now That’s What I Call Tylor and Vincent, Tylor and Vincent: Space, Miss Venezuela


Dre has presented their work at Jupiter Artland, Quench Gallery, Ugly Duck, Staffordshire Gallery, Shape Arts, The British Museum, SOHO Theatre, Brixton House Theatre, CASA Festival, Arcola Theatre, CPT and Shoreditch Town Hall. Dre is currently working in collaboration with Sweatmother for his performance piece entitled Dyke Just Do It at the ICA. Dre recently collaborated with Keira Saunders on Beasts Between The Cracks, a costume and movement performance workshop at the Turner Contemporary part of OSE’s Public Programme 22-23. As creative programmes producer for the radical care organisation People United, Dre delivered We Keep Each Other Fed, Queer Zines of Care, Soft Fascination and The Sea of the Unseeable. Dre produces Snug Club a queer experimental film club supporting up and coming filmmakers in the queer community in Margate with funding by Margate Pride. They are currently a visiting lecturer at Mountview Academy of Performing Arts on the Theatre in Community and Education MA programme.
