Esther-Rennae is a storyteller and emerging creative producer from London, committed to exposing the unheard stories that sweep the streets of London and beyond.
During her training at Loughborough University for a BA Hons degree in Drama with English, Esther-Rennae began her creative journey through filmmaking and writing for screen; inspired to create stories where she could see herself and her community honestly and imaginatively represented. Her first short film, Double-Edged was selected for Newham Rising film festival (2019). Her latest micro-short, 56 Black Men (2020) was selected for Wha’Gwan film festival (2021) which earned her a feature in the Evening Standard.
Her latest work for stage, Places of Me was produced at Theatre Peckham’s Tongue-Tied Festival (2021) under the Final Drafts programme. She is part of the cohort as a writer in Talawa’s flagship programme, TYPT 2021, and part of the 2022 Introduction to Playwright group at the Royal Court. Esther-Rennae was recently selected to be part of Nouveu Riche’s 2022 Associate Artist programme where she’ll be developing her first solo project for stage.
As a producer, The Narratives of Empathy and Resilience Programme (2021) at Half Moon Theatre will be her first credit as a producer in theatre. She is currently under commission with LU Arts, producing a new podcast in celebration of BHM, Reclaiming the Narrative: Chronicles of Black Joy and is excited to produce more British-African focused projects/stories as a producer at tiata fahodzi.
