How a Dance-Theatre Show is Tackling Mental Health in the Black Male Community

The British actor and choreographer Lanre Malalou has created a dance-theatre solo that explores issues surrounding mental health in the black male community. The dance-theatre piece is aptly titled Elephant in the Room and stars Malalou himself as the protagonist Michael. The actor draws on his own experience of suffering from depression as a young, black, working-class man. The solo fuses physical theatre, hip-hop dance, and spoken word in order to explore the mental health crisis and toxic masculinity.
