Tshaka Campbell is a father, husband, internationally acclaimed poet and word dealer, who paints elaborate worlds with words that make audiences listen different.
Born in the UK of Jamaican descent, Tshaka moved to the United States at the young age of 10 and only returned in 2008. As a performer, he is recognised as an accomplished artist and performer and was once voted one of the 25 people to know in San Francisco. From the legendary Apollo theatre in New York to the Southbank Centre in London, Tshaka has graced many stages.
Whether learning a new accent or dealing with children who didn't believe black people existed in England at the age of 10, moving back to England, resettling and becoming increasingly conscious of the lack of representation of black figures in the UK's world of success, or discovering a new meaning of home when he started his own family, Tshaka comes to the project amply equipped to explore the themes.
His ability to draw the audience into his stories with beautiful imagery and authentic emotion makes him an endless inspiration. Find out more.
