Tamasha is Britain’s foremost touring theatre company producing new plays inspired by the diversity of a globalised world. Our work places the voices of emerging and established artists from culturally diverse backgrounds centre-stage.
Our approach is boldly investigative and located along ‘cultural fault lines’, leading the debate around the meeting points and multiple narratives of contemporary Britain and beyond. We:
• present new plays from seldom-heard voices, charting the reality of lived multiculturalism
• train theatre artists and young people through ‘Tamasha Developing Artists’
• facilitate theatremakers to engage creatively with communities and audiences
