Founded by Adebayo Bolaji in 2009.

A collaboration of actors, musicians, writers... artists of every field creating theatre.
Ex Nihilo is a Latin expression meaning ‘Out of Nothing’.

The creation of Ex Nihilo came when Ade was at the Central School of Speech and Drama. Encouraged by course director, Paul Barker to not just to think like actors but more like practitioners, Ade began to form a group that will essentially look at approaching new ideas and work in a holistic way.

Ex Nihilo is committed to exploring ideas through various forms, be it; spoken word, movement, music or film. We are dedicated to seeing how a combination of these elements can come together theatrically.
