About the event

Fusing physical theatre, hip-hop dance and spoken word, this semi-autobiographical work by Lanre Malaolu is an explosive and unapologetic piece of dance theatre exploring the mental health crisis.

Michael, a young working-class black man from Hackney, seems to have a good life – a decent job, solid friends, he even volunteers as a football coach at his local youth football club on weekends. But as the days go by, it gets a little harder for Michael to get out of bed in the morning, a little harder for Michael to connect with his friends and a little harder for Michael to do his volunteering to the best of his ability. There’s something going on, something he needs to address but keeps hidden.

As the pressure mounts and the challenges of Michael’s mental health deepen, we see how he grapples to keep control and the effects it has on his life when he doesn’t.
