TECH X CREATIVE DIRECTION

We are a collective of artists x directors who embrace creativity. Our conceptual sensibility and design capabilities - offers human relationship before demographics, courage before culture and storytelling as a new social sanctuary.


CHOREOGRAPHY

Performance pieces using movement are not just about dance, but how you feel while creating it.  Skin to skin, body to body - each work, or experience we create is one of imagination, collaboration and a sense of surrender. 

Each work has made an impact on our clients - every project we ensure details are seamless, all aspects are imaginative and handled in a timely manner.  Whenever you work with L V M B you can be sure your project will be radical, profound and honest.

The L V M B Collective:  Established in 2009 - the objective of the collective was to interrogate western identity and Afro-anthropology. Currently it examines the relationship between the physical and philosophical post-colonial narratives of the west and the African diaspora.


LVMB was founded by actress Weléla Mar Kindred who was born and raised in Southern California. Her mother is a dancer, mathematician, and musician - inspiring her to hone the gift of movement. Her father is a retired biologist/photographer and lover of music - both parents are avid art collectors. Her name was given to her by her Ethiopian godmother - which translates in Amharic to the sweetest part of the honeycomb. Weléla's extended family is currently based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

She began her career studying ballet, theater and musical theater. She was awarded the Dean's scholarship to study Film / Performance Art at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago - as well been awarded the Dance New Amsterdam Choreographer Lab Artist in Residence {New York}. While residing in New York, she studied at The Alvin Ailey Dance Theater. Then later relocated to Paris - where her work was featured in the FRASQ Festival and Nuit Blanche. She received an NYU and Harvard Fellowship in Black body politics and her writings have appeared in Art Africa.

She is currently represented by Le Casting Parisien.
