About Us

Welcome to Emancipation Theater, where Roleplay is Ritual and the Stage is our Sanctuary. We are a performance art social enterprise dedicated to elevating the voices whose stories have been untold. Our name was inspired by a quote from Marcus Garvey; “We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery, for though others may free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind”.
