We're thrilled to announce our second Zealous Meetup! Creatives across all disciplines are invited to join us for a celebration of collaboration and networking.
If our pilot meetup was anything to go by, a great evening of creative energy, new hellos, inspiration and genuine enthusiasm is in store! Read more about our first meetup here.
Lanre Malaolu (choreographer and co-artistic director, Protocol Dance Company), Lennie Varvarides (creator, DYSPLA and MSFT Management) and Francesc Serra Vila (architect and set designer) will make up our guest panel. They'll share stories of their collaborative experiences and advice on finding the perfect creative partners.
Lanre Malaolu was the movement artist and choreographer on the British Council Film, Dear Mr Shakespeare which was selected for Sundance Film Festival 2017. Last year, he was handpicked from over 1,300 applicants to take part in the Old Vic Theatre's emerging talent scheme, 'Old Vic 12' where he was on placement as a theatre choreographer. Protocol were named first place international winners of 'Festival HOP' 2016, an annual dance festival in Barcelona.
Lennie Varvarides is a playwright and creator of DYSPLA, a company which exhibits and produces the work of dyslexic storymakers. DYSPLA has showcased work internationally, establishing itself at the forefront of the dyslexic and neurodiverse creative community. The next DYSPLA International Moving Image Festival will take place in London in November 2017. Lennie also runs MSFT Management, a boutique casting agency representing multi-skilled artists across the UK.
Francesc Serra Vila works mainly in site-specific installations, design for performances and interactive sculptures. His work is driven by his love of physics, materials, structures and movement. He ensures that each of his projects are immersive, site specific and evolving. Francesc’s work developed on his own or in collaboration with other artists (choreographers, sound and lighting designers), has been presented in cities including Barcelona, Brussels, Cardiff and London.
