Mashirika Performing Arts and Media Company was established in 1997. Through different modes of performance including dance, movement, music, drama, and spoken word, Mashirika is constantly exploring new ways to develop, learn and create exciting theatre.
We do so by bringing together different passions, moods, moves, sounds, words, rhythms and visuals. We’re always ready to add new things to the mix!
Mashirika is also on the forefront in using theatre for development. We have always used forms like interactive theatre, image theatre, and forum theatre. We are really more a community child than a city entertainer, engaging communities throughout Rwanda and the world with our home-grown methodologies.
One of our most consistent and engaging activities for this purpose is the Itetero Radio Drama that has been educating people through entertainment all over Rwanda for years.
