Monalisa Chinda’s Xmas Present To Us – A Dance for Life!
The play to be staged at the prestigious Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, is an enactment of a thrilling classical contemporary dance powered by the incredible Bailamos Dance Company, an ensemble that has treated Nigerian aristocrats, elites and technocrats to the best ecstatic performances.
It is being directed by choreography wizard, BunmiOlunloyo. But Project Help, according to the actress promises more. It is a night that will parade the best of Nollywood stars in an amazing dance-styli form that is bound to leave audience spellbound.
Featuring an array of Nigeria's biggest superstars including, Desmond Elliot, Kate Henshaw, Segun Arinze, Bimbo Akintola, Bovi, Saeon, the prima ballerina, Monalisa Chinda and many more. The breathtaking dance production will showcase even more theatrical elements and aesthetics as the Nollywood stars will also deliver electrifying performances that will intensify the tempo of this historical Christmas dance production.
Speaking recently about the inspiration behind the highly anticipated event, Monalisa enthusiastically stated, "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 norms, where people can experience classical recitals at its 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. We've been working on this for a while and it promises to be a memorable atmosphere of unlimited ecstasy, joy and bliss," she affirms.
