Taruwa Festival Returns with Three Days of Excitement
With two successful festivals in the bag and a five-year break, Taruwa Festival returns for an exciting 2019 edition, featuring panels, conversations, workshops, live interviews and performances in music, spoken word and dance. Themed Connecting Passions, this year’s edition will run from March 27 to 29, 2019 at Alba Lounge, in Victoria Island, Lagos.
The debut edition of the festival which held in June 2013, garnered rave reviews from a stage adaptation of Bobo Omotayo’s bestselling book London Life Lagos Living, a children’s show, screening of short films, open mic theatre, a mega concert, and the final closing ‘Ankara Ball’; a grand evening of amazing performances and fine dining.
“As we present our third edition, we have designed an exciting line up of events to include a theatre production, a music concert, and a festival of shorts (short film screenings) amongst other exciting events,” said the organisers.
The second edition of the festival was a 4day cocktail of events sharing the Nigerian and African story through music, spoken word, literature, dance, fashion, a workshop and the stage production of the play The Engagement by award-winning Author, Sefi Atta.
The festival is conceived as an annual performing arts event, which holds in Lagos, Nigeria for three or four days and presents groundbreaking work in performing arts (theatre, music, comedy, spoken word, dance and fashion) with a focus on not only Nigeria and Africa, but the global artist. The festival expands the horizons of Nigerian artists and audiences with work that is visionary, genre-bending, multi-disciplined, impressive and original.
