Afroman Spice is a theatrical group of only women on stage. Birthed in Uganda by three female artists: Nabasa Linda, Nankoma Sandra and Namulondo Rashida, the vision of the group is to grow into a multi international company that supports women in arts all over Africa.The group encourages women to use theatre to engage communities in issues that affect them and their children: politically, socially and economically.
We choose to break traditional norms so as to empower and elevate the African woman spirit and position in society, self-representation, self-love, and empathy.
The first show Titled AFROMANSPICE premiered on 10th July, 2015 at the Ugandan National Theatre and attracted an audience of over 250 people and coverage from eight television and print media houses.The one and half hour show explored new ways of theatre productions combining poetry, monologue, music hence attracting a wider audience.
Afro Man Spice show is a play about three African women who each tell their relationship experiences with men. Coming from different backgrounds and social classes, Marina, an independent woman is pushed into a psychotic break after her failed marriage. Her neighbor Kendra, a lonely woman despises and calls her a mad woman of no class. The emotions of these two women are tested when Sarah a poor spice seller comes into their lives. She is convinced the food spices she sells can fix broken relationships and encourages the two women to reach their ultimate goal of self-love, happiness and forgiveness.
