Abibigromma was created with the intension of harmonizing our unique socio-cultural music, dance and drama into beautiful artistic expressions on stage. These artistic expressions and stage performance often occur at home and abroad. At home we can be seen at a variety of places including the National Theatre, public promotional campaigns or at our Efua T.Sutherland drama studio at Legon. We do travel occasionally abroad and this occurs as a result of bilateral efforts between the university and other institutions.


Under the direction of others including Dr. Mohammed Ibn Abdallah, the group was established in 1982, firstly as a repertory Compamy of the School of Performing Arts with the sole mission of promoting and researching into the Performing Arts of Ghana, West Africa and the entire continent.
