We are delighted to share that Lanre Malaolu's Elephant in the Room will be premiering at the Camden People's Theatre between 2–20 April 2019. The performance was presented as part of the Stuart Hall Foundation's First Annual Public Conversation in 2018.

Fusing physical theatre, hip hop dance and spoken word, Elephant in The Room is an explosive solo that explores the mental health crisis and the phenomenon of toxic masculinity. This semi-autobiographical work, created and performed by Lanre Malaolu, takes a sharp sideways look at the insidious stigma around mental health issues, asking how race, class and culture can affect the way we choose to address them. And what happens when we don’t…

With live sound manipulation from Jan Brzezinski and dramaturgical support from Season Butler and Zoe Lafferty.

Commissioned by Camden People’s Theatre with support from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Supported by Arts Council England, Battersea Arts Centre, Camden Peoples Theatre, Talawa Theatre Company, The WellcomeTrust, MGCfutures and The Place.
