About
tiata fahodzi

tiata fahodzi produces theatre that is fearless for a Britain of today; rich with languages, races, cultures and identities.

We make theatre that looks around and looks forward, with social change the driving force behind what we do; we are on a mission to tell contemporary stories in modern and innovative ways, celebrating characters and audiences defined not by their diversity, but by their humanity. 

tiata fahdozi is an engine room for so many of the conversations that are currently being had about British African heritage identity, how to make the industry inside and out a more dynamic and inclusive place for everyone. We want to see an Arts and Cultural ecology in Britain where everyone feels invited and welcome to participate. 

A culture where all experiences – including the contemporary British African heritage experience - is celebrated, and we see ourselves in our full complexity and joy.

"...gorgeous theatre from a truly diverse company."
