FOLLOWING A SELL-OUT WORLD PREMIERE IN 2021, ★★★★ SAMSKARA RETURNS.
WHEN I LOOK AT YOU WHEN OUR EYES CONNECT? I HAVE TO PROTECT TO HOLD ON TO SOMETHING CAUSE THERE’S TOO MUCH TO FEEL.
Four generations of Black men are trying to understand themselves in a world that tells them that they have to be strong. They tell their stories their bodies intertwine they move for themselves and for one another. Inspired by real-life testimonies SAMSKARA is an explosive fusion of movement hip-hop dance and text an exploration of Black masculinity vulnerability and the cycles of fatherhood.
Moving through joy and suffering laughter and longing this soul-baring odyssey by award-winning artist Lanre Malaolu is an ode to what it means to be a Black man in Britain today.
