Lagos Theatre Festival 2018 Kicks Off With Unconventional Spaces

Lagos – Oscar Wilde said, “The stage is not merely the meeting place of all the arts, but is also the return of art to life.” If this is true then Nigeria, with our own kind of theatre unconventional and unique probably relate better to this statement than even the culture from which Wilde emanates. Our theatre has always been one not performed on a conventional stage, but like life and every accidental theatre, it expresses itself in accidental space.
For the 2018 Lagos Theatre Festival set to hold from February 27 to March 4, it is going to be a different breed entirely as the theme for the year is ‘Theatre in Unconventional Spaces’.
Being the fifth edition of the festival, it is set to take place across various venues in Lagos, and will focus on presenting innovative interpretations of new ideas that will inspire, challenge audiences, and new works that will spark conversations and debates. 
Playing host to over 600 artists, 100 performances at 12 Venues, the festival promises to offer a variety of choices for everyone including lovers of theatre, enthusiasts and returning visitors to the Festival
Since its inception, Lagos Theatre Festival has remained one of the most diverse and exciting events in the Arts community and will continue to set the standard in contemporary and classic work from leading artists/directors/producers/ scriptwriters.
