about me.

I am Mojisola Kareem.

I was born in the UK and lived in London until I was 6 years old. I spent the next twenty years in Nigeria before returning to the UK in my twenties. I speak Yoruba fluently and can read and write it proficiently. I am a theatre and film maker, artist, writer, dramaturg, and producer. I make multidisciplinary work that feels accessible to people that are not regular theatre goers, whilst giving regular theatre goers an exciting night of something new!.

I’m a playful storyteller and passionate theatre maker.

I pursued a career as a lawyer to please others and decided to return to the university in my 40’s to pursue my first love – theatre and performance. I am so happy that I made that decision. Through the decision, I have found love, peace, and joy. I do the work I do because I love it.

I began my career in the arts in 2012, with a 6-month internship at York Theatre Royal.

my practice

Collaborative highly stylized and physical artistic endeavour, often without boundaries between the director, writer, and the performers and with audience participation and storytelling at the very heart of the creation of the work.
