From The Page to Stage; ‘LONDON LIFE LAGOS LIVING’ Comes Alive at the #TaruwaFestival (06.06.13).

A few weeks ago, the TARUWA FESTIVAL OF PERFORMING ARTS IN NIGERIA [TAF] was announced to very positive reception. Powered by Gbagyichild Entertainment, conveners of  the hugely famous monthly gathering TARUWA, the Festival is a 3day event which kicks off this Thursday, June 6, and the team is proud to announce that BOBO Omotayo’s book LONDON LIFE, LAGOS LIVING has been adapted for the stage, to be seen  for the first time ever at the #TaruwaFestival!

LONDON LIFE, LAGOS LIVING, The collection of short Lagos-life observations turned ‘tales’, is the extraordinary journey of a western trained mind trying to navigate his way through the Lagos metropolis.

Published in November 2011, the book has received rave reviews, and the Author, Bobo Omotayo, is excited about this project, saying “The adaptation of the book into a movie and TV series had been offered by various production houses since its publication. However, when the organisers of Taruwa approached us with this great concept, it was something I felt was worth exploring – and Just like the collection of short stories, there’s a lot of food for thought… so [when attending]come with an open mind.”

The London Life, Lagos Living theatre production features a stellar cast, with Kenneth Uphopho as Director, and the #TaruwaFestival  Convener, Lydia Idakula Sobogun, as Producer.

Also, as part of the plan for a well-rounded evening, the event, which doubles as the opening ceremony for the festival will feature a special music performance by the ‘Supersun’ BEZ, and Ijeoma Agu’s one-woman show ‘CHRONICLES OF A HEROINE’, which she first performed in London as part of the Olympics team from Nigeria, and which always has the audience spell-bound.

So,  picture a group of vibrant actors show you the life and experiences  of a young man, a woman engage you with her tales of woe, and a rockstar strum his guitar while singing to your heart, all in the space of 2hours!! That’s exactly what the show will be about… See you at the Festival!

ABOUT TARUWA FESTIVAL
This June, in addition to its already accomplished monthly gatherings, Taruwa introduces a festival, Taruwa Festival of Performing Arts in Nigeria [TAF]. The festival which is designed to be a 3day cocktail of rich events, is an annual event kicking off this year on Thursday June 6 and ending on Saturday, June 8, 2013, to paint Lagos all shades of art through music, poetry, theatre, dance, fashion and screening of short films, all holding at the artsy venue of TerraKulture, Victoria Island, Lagos.

TARUWA FESTIVAL OF PERFORMING ARTS IN NIGERIA (TAF) is designed to be an annual performing arts event which will hold in Lagos, Nigeria. It will hold for a weekend in June and will present ground breaking work in Performing Arts (Theater, Music, Comedy, Spoken Word, Dance and Fashion) focusing on Nigeria and Africa but including the global artist. The festival will expand the horizons of Nigerian artists and audiences with work that is visionary, genre-bending, multi-disciplined, startling and original.

The Festival will showcase international, African and local (Nigerian) artists and mix them together with an alchemy that will inspire audiences, invigorate artists, stimulate the industry and forge productive relationships around the globe.

Though its first outing, the passionate team at TAF plans for the festival to be the largest and most consistent performing arts festival in Nigeria, attracting visitors from all over the world, and making it a festival of National importance, highly valued as a catalyst for cultural and community development.
