About Blemme Fatale Productions

Blemme Fatale Productions is committed to healing the cultural and historical knowledge gap across the Black diaspora through creativity. 

Consequently, our mission is to: 

  • To offer inclusive, progressive alternative routes of education

  • To demystify an elitist and hard to reach industry

  • To create local and community focused mechanisms to serve those who aren’t normally included

  • To nurture and facilitate cross-generational and cross-disciplinary relationships 

Lamesha Ruddock
Creative Director and Founder

Lamesha Ruddock is a dynamic cultural producer, seasoned stage manager, captivating performance artist, and dedicated historian specialising in 20th-century Black British feminist history. Her passion lies in creating immersive theatrical experiences and events that ignite active engagement with the rich tapestry of Black diasporic history, empowering individuals with the tools to express themselves creatively.

Lamesha's journey in the theatre industry began with a transformative summer internship at Hamilton West End in 2021, evolving into her role as a stage management deputy. Her expertise expanded as she contributed to productions like Cherry Orchard (Yard Theatre) and Baghdaddy (Royal Court), eventually stepping into the role of Company Stage Manager for Breeding (King's Head). As a proactive producer, Lamesha completed the Rosetta Arts Cultural Producers Course (2022-23), securing a placement at Theatre Royal Stratford East. Her commitment to growth continued with the Battersea Arts Centre's Young Producers Course in 2023, where she played a pivotal role in the success of the Homegrown Festival.

Breaking barriers, Lamesha made history as the inaugural Co-Executive Director of Boundless Theatre in 2023, pioneering a model of young co-leadership. In May 2023, her outstanding achievements were acknowledged with a successful DYCP (Arts Council England) application. Since December 2023, Lamesha has embarked on a compelling journey in Toronto, immersing herself in a research and archival project focused on the history of Jamaican Patois in the city. 


Lamesha is part of the 11th cohort for the Black Theatre Workshop (Canada's oldest Black Theatre Company) Artist Mentorship Program 2023-24.
