Utopia Theatre (UT) is a Sheffield based producing company formed in 2012 to create for the British and international stage, high quality African theatre, with imaginative flair.
They commission new plays and re-imagine classics in a way that demonstrates their contemporary relevance and appeal to a new audience and regular theatre goers. The company synthesises African and Western performing traditions to celebrate the meeting of different cultures, and presents productions in Sheffield and on tour, with programmes aimed at developing and promoting Black writers and performers.
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 joins the Prosper North community as part of Edition 2.
