A group of men dressed in black, posing around a black car

Sadler’s Wells x 180 Studios
A co-production with The Factory and ALTRUVIOLET

From award winning dance artist and cultural innovator Ivan Michael Blackstock comes TRAPLORD, an immersive dance performance meditating on life, death and rebirth.

Wandering between dreams and reality, TRAPLORD takes us on a new heroic journey to self-actualisation.

Using dance, theatre and spoken word to explore raw and confrontational themes of mental health and masculinity, TRAPLORD is an invitation to question the stereotyping of Black men in contemporary western society; an attempt to escape from the mental state of being condemned before having lived.

Image description: Seven young men are gathered around a black car which sits on a bed of pink and white flowers, like a tribute for a funeral. The men wear black hoodies, combat trousers and puffa jackets. One, with large rabbit ears coming from his hood, has a wide, relaxed smile; another holds a latex pig mask. The men’s faces are painted a dark, metallic black, contrasting with the warm brown tones of the skin on their necks and hands.
