Tantoloun Productions is helping the City of Lagos get back to enjoying all that is art via dance, music, spoken words and more.
Supported by Alliance Française de Lagos, the event will hold on Sunday, 22 Nov. 2020 at the auditorium of Alliance Française de Lagos / Mike Adenuga Centre, between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
As’tele Hangout is a platform that shows new art works and bridges the gap between artists, their audience and other stakeholders, as well as celebrate personalities who have contributed to the growth of the art in society.
But as the COVID-19 restrictions have affected everyone in the arts sector, the production outfit has had to reinvent new models to keep thriving.
Therefore, the producers are using this opportunity as the year gradually draws to a close, to organize this event to create more connections between artists and the audience.
It is also using this medium to create engagement and support for artists who have not had the opportunity to work during the restriction period and its aftermath.
The event would feature a selection of newly-created works featuring dance, music, sound art, drama and spoken word.
It would also provide a platform for conversations and networking. The event would be free, but on RSVP only.
According to the producers, the two major performances for the event are:
- I am ‘WE’: a contemporary dance piece created with 7 vibrant dancers. The idea was inspired by the song titled Ayomi by Oluwakemi Falola, initially created for the music video.
Synopsis: The individual and the community act in harmony and are connected throughout time and space, which is demonstrated through generational equivalence. This self-similarity is reflected in the aphorism: “a person is a person through other persons.” It is therefore understood that a person is the physical embodiment of the past, present, and future communities.
- Experimental Sounds by Ibukun Oladipupo Sunday, a Sound Artist, Violist and Classical Musician.
Ibukun uses sound to create ambient music, live electronics, sound art, soundscape, synthesizer music, noise and dark ambient. His kind of sound is a transcendental sound journey into the inner depths, making sounds to connect wild and human feelings.
He has participated in a number of international projects8 with perfocraZe International Artist Residency; Terra Alta, Ghana; and Tunde Jegede’s Nok Orchestra London.
LIMITED SEATING CAPACITY DUE TO COVID-19 PROCEDURES: RSVP ONLY
A private online link to the event will be available at a later date for those who are not able to attend.
