EVENT: The Elephant in The Room

An explosive solo that explores the mental health crisis and the phenomenon of toxic masculinity

By Lanre Malaolu

Screened HERE
From 1:00 PM  Friday October 23
to 11:00 PM Thursday October 29
Running time: 60 minutes

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. The show 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…

“Something’s wrong. Can’t get out of bed, can’t concentrate, can’t shake the mounting tension. Something unspoken is building up, leaking out, taking over…”

‘The Elephant In The Room’ is available as part of ‘Three Dance Films’ brought to you in partnership with Rural Touring Dance Initiative. Each show will be available for a week only and will be released on a Friday afternoon. They can be watched easily and for free. Each show is accompanied by a Q&A session with the artists which will be held on zoom, anyone can book to attend.

Minimum age recommended 14yrs.
