Now, I See

10 May – 1 June 2024
Stratford East

Created by Lanre Malaolu

Two brothers reunite to honour their sibling’s life at a celebration of remembrance. As they grapple with their loss, they are forced to confront their shared past and long-standing estrangement. 

Following the sell-out run of SAMSKARA (The Yard), this brand-new work by Lanre Malaolu explores the challenge of forgiving yourself for a lifetime of suppressed emotion, while celebrating the profound bond of brotherhood and the resilience that can be found in joy. 

A powerful fusion of movement, song, and text, Now, I See is an exploration of identity, letting go and nature’s visceral power to heal. 

Now, I See is the second instalment in Lanre’s trilogy that excavates and celebrates the truth of being a Black man in contemporary Britain.
