Dejavu Tafari


Dejavu Tafari has been involved in the performing arts since her high school days. Her work fuses elements of physical theatre, contemporary live performance, music and story-telling to deliver impassioned and poignant social commentary. She currently co-owns NTUTOPIA PRODUCTIONS – a township-based production company and uses this platform to generate theatre and television productions which focus on telling stories that empower the black youth demographic by reinforcing positive values. She has performed on various platforms including Speak The Mind Poetry Extravaganza (2009), The National Parliament’s Tribute To Women Event (2010), Badilisha Poetry’s 100 000 Poets for Change (2011), Woman To Woman (2012) and The Artscape Humanities Women In Art Festival (2013).
