A National Portfolio Funded Organisation with Arts Council England, Utopia Theatre is a leading voice for African Theatre in the UK. Formed in 2012 by director Mojisola Kareem, with a mission to bring contemporary work celebrating elements of life, culture, language and traditions from Africa to the British stage. The company is based in Sheffield and was provided with residency premises at Sheffield Theatres in 2016. We present productions there and tour nationally and internationally. We also pride ourselves on our ability to deliver our work both live and digitally, the latter enabled through the creation of a wealth of online resources and digital events. Our mission is to actively engage African communities, facilitate the development of emerging artists and foster dialogue and creative exchanges.
