For 34 years, Talawa has been breaking down barriers and providing opportunities for Black artists throughout the UK. With a record of more than 50 touring productions, we create work that shines a spotlight on the best and most exciting emerging and established Black artists, making theatre for everyone.
Recent Festival of New Work
Talawa Firsts is the stage for fresh Black creative voices. Hear these voices and be a part of Talawa’s artistic community as we take over the Ditch at Shoreditch Town Hall to celebrate the UK's exciting new Black writers and theatre makers.
The Tide is a Talawa Theatre Company, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, and Breakin’ Convention co-production, and is Talawa's first ever show created exclusively for outdoor performance.
