Black Theatre Live

Tribe Arts

We are Tribe Arts, a philosophically inspired, radical-political theatre company based in Leeds/Bradford. Originally a company of five, now the two remaining founding members – Tajpal Rathore and Samran Rathore – spearhead the creative vision, which is both excitingly radical and intuitively revolutionary. We amplify the stories and voices of the current Black and Asian generation and believe theatre needs to be rejuvenated into the 21st century, and want to cultivate an environment for a renaissance in theatre-making and produce unexpected theatre that reaches towards transcendental experiences.

Ongoing Projects

In May 2015, Tribe Arts launched with their unique performance-discussion format, Tribe Talks, at the National Media Museum, as part of the Bradford Literature Festival - think Question Time but interspered with live performance, music and film. Tribe will continue to develop this innovative format, with plans for a mini tour some time next year.

Currently, Tribe are working towards producing a showcase tribute to Shakespeare, to mark his 400th death anniversary this year. They will be writing an original new play by amalgamating the essential storylines of 6 of his most-loved plays, all staged in a unique Gothic-Mughal style. The showcase will be happening in May as part of the Bradford Literature Festival, find out more here.
