Lanre's multi-award-winning THE CIRCLE is a bold and lyrical portrayal of two brothers, David and Sanchez, living on a Hackney council estate, in East London. The film gives a compelling insight into their family and friendships, the stigmas they face daily, their mental health and how they process their emotions.
Combining dance with documentary, their story and the challenges they face are embodied through vivid movement sequences. The Circle looks at what it means to be a young black man growing up in inner-city London.

SAMSKARA untangles the questions, challenges and contradictions of what it means to be a black man in 21st century Britain.
Through a fusion of physical theatre, hip-hop dance and text, SAMSKARA follows the journey of four generations of black men and explores how cycles of fatherhood affect masculinity, concepts of vulnerability and the harbouring of emotional pain.
Full-length theatre production written, directed and choreographed by Lanre. Supported by Jerwood Arts New Work fund & Battersea Arts Centre.
