Lanre's award-winning film 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 - embodied through vivid movement sequences.
The Circle looks at what it means to be a young black man growing up in inner-city London.

Individual online premier - July 2021.
A collaboration between Lanre Malaolu and actor Regé-Jean Page.
Conceived in the midst of the long, hard summer of 2020; Lanre’s visceral choreography meets Regé-Jean’s swooning love song and remixes it into an explosively physical, intensely personal journey.
‘Don’t Wait’ confronts how we learn to cope with, and grow beyond, the imperfect legacy and enormous grief the world inevitably throws at us all.
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.
Supported by Jerwood Arts New Work fund & Battersea Arts Centre.
