OUR STORY

We produce and tell stories that shift the representations of the contemporary South African black female, on and off the stage

Manyano Media is a multidisciplinary creative company that produces literary and media-based works for syndication in publishing, film, advertising, television and theatre. 

 

By supporting black, queer, women storytellers in South Africa, Manyano Media aims to create a counter-archive which disrupts and reimagines narratives about black and queer women on and off stage.
