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.

Created by Lanre Malaolu (In development, premiering 2021)
