Lagos Theatre Festival 2021: ‘Reckless Art’
The 2021 edition of the annual Lagos Theatre Festival (LTF) will run from 18 March to 21 March on digital streaming platforms such as Stage Play TV and Wealth Nation TV. Themed ‘Reckless Art’, the four-day event marks the 8th anniversary of the Festival, as well as a first for holding virtually. ‘Reckless Art’ will feature 7 production companies including Kininso Concepts, Just Theatre House, and Mystro Theatre. In addition, there will be workshops, online parties, master classes, Instagram live sessions, and panel discussions.
Lagos Theatre Festival was conceived and launched in 2013 by the British Council, with the purpose of providing a platform for theatre makers in Nigeria to produce theatre works for unconventional spaces and develop audiences for theatre productions. The management of the Festival recently transitioned into the care of a registered trust, a Not-for-Profit organisation – LTF Foundation LTD/GTE managed by a board of directors – Olasupo Shasore SAN (Chairman), Bikiya Graham-Douglas, Ajoke Silva, Bolanle Austen-Peters, David Evans, Bolanle Austen-Peters and Tosin Oshinowo.
During a virtual media briefing, Graham-Douglas expressed an eagerness on behalf of the team and assured that scrupulous arrangements have been effected to ensure the success of the event. “It’s not been easy. We’ve had a rough couple of months to ensure the success of the festival.”
