Friday night performance
Elephant in the Room
About the performance
Elephant in the Room explores the complexities of mental health, from a working class black male perspective. Elephant in the Room follows a day in the life of a young man and his constant internal and external battle to be “Normal”. Using blends of physical theatre, hip hop dance and spoken word, the piece challenges the conventional ideas embedded in our society around mental health.
Lanre Malaolu is a choreographer and performer. He uses blends of physical theatre, hip-hop dance and text to create work which aims to enhance and challenge our social and political worldviews. His choreography has been performed at Sadler's Wells Theatre, The Wilderness Festival, as well as internationally in Barcelona & the USA. In 2016, Lanre was chosen to be a choreographer on the inaugural OLD VIC 12 and was the choreographer and movement artist on The British Council film ‘Dear Mr Shakespeare’, which was selected for the Sundance Film Festival in 2017. Lanre is also a trained actor (Drama Centre London) and has worked extensively in theatre and television.
