LBHF 2015… Echoes of Sambisa forest, The Tragedy of King Christophe

LBHF 2015… Echoes of Sambisa forest, The Tragedy of King Christophe

"Jos Repertory Theatre’s performance of The Tragedy of King Christophe on the night was energetic and exciting. Although, the characters did not affect the speech patterns of Haitians, they came close to some of the mannerisms. Particularly brilliant were the Victorian-style costumes, the ballroom parties and affectations that Christophe created to imitate European monarchical models of power and grandeur".

Lastly, the play calls for a need to first understand government’s policy before criticising it."

"That was the basis for the work that the five mentors wrought on the young talents selected for grooming in various spheres within the artistic space. The mentors were Mrs. Taiwo Ajayi-Lycett (playwriting and acting), Dr. Tunde Awosomi (directing), Peter Badejo (dance and choreography), Olori Peju Sonuga (costume and make-up) and Alhaji Teju Kareem (set and lighting design).
"The task of the mentors was to groom Amy Richards and Naomi Richards (playwriting and acting), Abraham Aklisoku (choreography and dance), Adenike Adebisi (costume and make-up), Fejiro Adesida (directing), Silvia Oboh Oko and Joy Nweye Obuto (set and lighting design). And they did well, judging from the enthusiastic testimonies of the trainee artists and the output of their performances".

"Lagos Black Heritage Festival 2015 will no doubt continue to echo in the minds of Lagosians who took time to be part of it. This year seemed better organised, with activities that seemed designed to reach to the core of culturally conscious audiences".
