Black Theatre Live

Tiata Fahodzi

Tee∙ah∙tah fa∙hoon∙zi  meaning ’Theatre of the Emancipated’ is  Britain’s leading African theatre company, producing world-class theatre that reflects the changing African diaspora in contemporary Britain. 

Founded in 1997 by Femi Elufowoju, Jr, the company aspires to produce world-class theatre that reflects the experiences of Africans in Britain.  In 2014 natalie ibu became our third artistic director and with her came a question: what does it mean to be of African heritage but of mixed experience?

In 2015 and beyond, we reflect the changing and developing diaspora with a particular interest in the dual and the in-between, in those who straddle worlds, cultures, languages, classes, heritages, races and struggles.  Our vision - for 2015 and beyond - sees us embrace the multiple in all ways - narrative, form, experience, identity, scale - in order to continue to boldly interrogate what it means to be a British African today.

Our stories are no longer niche but – as Britain is changing – are moving into the mainstream.  Our work starts with the contemporary British African experience but reaches beyond to ask us all, what does it mean to be a contemporary Briton, now.
