About Utopia Theatre
Utopia Theatre was founded in 2012 by Mojisola Elufowoju. The company prides itself on being a leading voice for African Theatre in the UK, particularly in the digital space. The company is dedicated to demonstrating the rich cultural heritage of Africa’s theatre canon, and in so doing, dispel stereotypes and encourage authentic voices from the African Diaspora.
Utopia Theatre believes that theatre is one way in which we can ‘catch the conscience’ of the people. Our mission is to stage creative works from Africa and its Diaspora through a process that actively engages African communities, facilitates the development of emerging artists and fosters dialogue and creative exchanges.
With a unique style combining African theatre tradition with that of the Western world, Utopia Theatre creates artistic work which represents voices of the African diaspora in the 21st century. The company works in three main areas – theatre production and touring both in the UK and on the international stage, supporting new and developing artists, and using African Theatre and storytelling within the community. Utopia Theatre prides itself on its ability to deliver its work both live and digitally, with a wealth of online resources and digital events.
