MZL, primarily known as MZL Space and also known as MZL Productions, is a company that I built during the final year of my MFA at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. It has now been successfully endorsed and funded by RCSSD, as well as Cambridge University, and has received government approval.
MZL is an interdisciplinary artistic practice & studio. MZL represents immortal and eternal creative experimentation. That means we are constantly developing new ideas and trying to uncover the unknown. It's not as cliché as it sounds, given that we do attract controversy. Not deliberately but it does mean we are doing something worth noticing.
MZL is also a film and theatre production company, which promotes work by artists of colour. The company has a focus on increasing representation for women of colour working within the arts and creative industries firstly in the UK, and then internationally, and we strive to work with everyone. We are also actively making practical efforts to implement environmentally sustainable practices in all our work so please refer to the sustainability section for more information. We are, of course, remaining up-to-date on the latest COVID-19 regulations.
MZL is a recipient of Central's Start-Up and Enterprise Award and is in its initial phase of development, so please return for future updates. We are not at this moment in time aiming to become massively commercially viable, we have a very long-term goal and vision of achieving self-sustainability and creating fearless work.
So rather, for the time being, our aim is to foster a safe, creative, experimental space, where we can continue to cultivate new ideas. In that sense, for now, it is a space primarily for our founder (me!) to continue developing my artistic practice and collaborate with others in the process.
