On 24 December, actress Monalisa Chinda will hold the maiden edition of her production, Project Help: A Dance for Life.
The production is an enactment of contemporary dance and is powered by Bailamos Dance Company, an ensemble that has treated the cream of the society to great performances. It is directed by choreography wizard, Bunmi Olunloyo. Venue is the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The event will have a star-studded cast. Desmond Elliot, Kate Henshaw, Segun Arinze, Uche Jombo, Bimbo Akintola, Saeon, Bovi and Monalisa Chinda will be on parade.
“It is a night that will parade the best of Nollywood stars in an amazing dance-style form that would leave the audience spellbound. I’ve been nurturing the dance production idea for quite a while but my several engagements wouldn’t avail me enough time, so I kept developing it.
“I’ve always wanted a production, away from the norm, where people can experience classical recitals at their very best. While this remains a great way to celebrate Christmas with loved ones, I also see it as a powerful means of awakening the dwindling culture of theatre in Africa at large,” explained the actress.
