Our headliner this month is Malaika Kegode

Malaika Kegode is an award-winning writer, performer, and creative producer. Her work is focused on uplifting and celebrating the overlooked and misunderstood. Beginning her arts career as a performance poet in 2014, Malaika has since developed her practice to encompass theatre, radio and film writing.

Her gig-theatre show Outlier, an autobiographical piece about addiction and isolation in rural England performed with prog-rock band Jakabol was the first piece of new writing to appear on Bristol Old Vic’s main stage in 2021. Malaika’s work has been featured on a wide variety of stages and platforms, including Lyric Hammersmith, BBC Radio 4 and Random Acts.

She is a vocal advocate for creativity as a tool for healing and connection, and has dedicated much of her career to supporting the creativity and development of underrepresented voices through teaching workshops, mentoring individuals and producing accessible events.

Malaika is an associate artist for Bristol Old Vic, part of the 2023 English Touring Theatre Nationwide Voices cohort and the current writer-in-residence at University of Bristol Theatre Collection.
