500 performing artists will present over 70 performances at 16 venues during the 2017 Lagos Theatre Festival (LTF).

This edition of the festival, themed “Rhythm of the city”, is expected to portray the rhythm, soul and sights of Lagos.

The festival is scheduled to hold from Tuesday, February 28 to Sunday, March 5.

“We are very proud of what Lagos theatre festival has achieved in terms of being a platform through which the Nigerian theatre sector engages with the rest of the world.

“This year’s festival will see visitors from International Network for contemporary performing arts (IETM), International association of theatre critics (IATC) and festival management organisations from around the UK like Walk the Plank, London international festival of theatre (LIFT) and institutions like Edinburgh Napier University.

“It’s become much more than a festival! What we are offering at this year LTF is a lifestyle. We want you our esteemed audience to look forward to a thrilling experience,” said Kenneth Uphopho, festival director.

The festival which would span six days is organised by British Council.
