Tangle | African & Caribbean Theatre

International Theatre for Local People
Tangle is South West England’s African Caribbean Theatre Company. We celebrate the work of artists of African, Caribbean and more than 50 other heritages.


Support our work by becoming a TangleFriend.

Formed in remote West Cornwall in 2009, Tangle started as a tiny, local company. We now work across South West England and beyond to champion theatre artists from across Africa, the Caribbean and globally.

We’ve produced 4 touring productions (from the the TMA Award-winning Everyman in 2009 to the sell out Doctor Faustus in 2018), supported the career development of over 300 artists and commissioned more than 30 writers and musicians.

‘I appreciate Tangle’s vision to set a positive example in building strong relationships between cultures, and to engender a collaborative and creative environment for professional theatre makers to come together, network, support each other and develop material.’ Yinka Shonibare, CBE (RA)
