Happy Feet In Broadstreet: At QDance Center’s ‘Dance Gathering 2018’

One of Lagos City’s busiest thoroughfares, Broad Street, was turned into a dance floor a few weeks ago. The ever bustling street, with its monolithic skyscrapers and headquarters of some the largest corporations in the country, served as the backdrop as dancers, contortionists and even fire-eaters turned the street into a canvas of visual delight.

Based on popular demand, after their debut last year, the QDance, a dance institution, led by Qudus Onikeku, in collaboration with other creative establishments, created the “Dance Gathering” –  a celebration of dance as an art form.

This year’s edition was themed Body and Memory and it focuses on exploring the body as a cache of inherited trauma. This is greatly reflected in the penultimate spoken word performance and the final dance which led to the climax of the event.

Live music, dance performances, graffiti exhibition, exotic drinks, Dance Gathering was a sigh to behold. Check out photos below.
