Qudus Onikeiku – Re:incarnation

Tuesday 8 October - Wednesday 9 October

An ode to the riches of Nigerian culture, this dance, music, fashion and visual art fusion mixes ancient Yoruba philosophy with the rhythm and spirit of the country’s hyper-vibrant youth culture, bursting with pure and uncompromising joy.

 

Ten young dancers and two musicians perform the cycle of life with explosive energy, marked by the urban chaos of the Nigerian city of Lagos.

Paying homage to the wealth and profusion of Nigerian music, the show draws on Afrobeats, born
of an explosive cocktail of jazz, soul, funk, and traditional African music. In this mix of urban cultures, a reincarnation of the personal journeys of each of the dancers comes to the fore, marked by their individual signatures.

“A tremendous piece. The QDance Company’s ten dancers and two musicians command the stage with Broadway-like showmanship.” MONTREAL RAMPAGE
