Dance Consortium presents

Qudus Onikeku | The QDance Company

Nigeria’s ground-breaking dance company explodes onto the stage with the sensational Re:INCARNATION.

An ode to the richness of Nigerian culture, this dance, music, fashion and visual art creation showcases the depth of ancient Yoruba philosophy mixed with Nigerian youth culture bursting with pure and uncompromising joy.

Ten young dancers and two musicians perform the cycle of life with explosive energy, marked by the urban chaos of the Nigerian city of Lagos. Dressed in a kaleidoscopic array of colour and cloth, body paint, masks and props, they move with exuberant energy in this multi-sensorial work.

Paying homage to the wealth and profusion of Nigerian music, the show draws on Afrobeats, born
 of an explosive cocktail of jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop and traditional African music. In this mix of urban cultures, a reincarnation of the personal journeys of each of the dancers comes to the fore, marked by their individual signatures.

Age guide 12+

A tremendous piece. The QDance Company’s 10 dancers and two musicians command the stage with Broadway-like showmanship.
