As part of UK/Nigeria 2015–16, the British Council, over the weekend brought together disabled and non-disabled artists for a dance showcase, part of the ‘Dis Fix’project, at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island.
The performance by QDance Center titled ‘Iwalewa’, explored the different concepts of beauty and told the stories of society through the eyes of the disabled dancers. The piece was performed by four disabled dancers and six non-disabled dancers.
The last performance of the night was by Ijodee dance company, featuring two disabled and one non-disabled dancer, who displayed an infectious energy through their performance of the piece “Ni’Sonilojo’ which explored the theme of co-existence.
The dance pieces also featured great music from musicians Keziah Jones and Debie and the evening rounded off with spoken word by the compere and award winning OAP, Wana Wana.
