CuRRENT & UPCOMING SHOWS
A traditional festival performance
arranged & directed by Taiwo Aloba
October 1, 8, 15 at 3pm
EYO is a theatrical work incorporating multiple artistic mediums and elevated by the element of live singing and dance. Audience members will be immersed in an environment of symphonic Yoruba traditional music and movements.
The EYO festival is a cultural symbolism that is well inculcated in the traditions and values of the people of Lagos. Through dance, ceremonial drumming, chant, authentic costumes, and music, Eyo Adimu Orisha Play conveys the extraordinary depth and breadth of genuine Yoruba culture and brings the magnificence of the origins of African theater back to life on stage.

The Incomplete Collection
by Linked Dance Theatre
Starts September 30
A mysterious Curator is inviting you to a full gallery showing of The Incomplete Collection at Culture Lab LIC. But what is on display are no mere works of art, but ideas - incomplete ideas to be precise - that are looking for just the right humans to complete them.
Will you be one of the lucky few to get a chance to trade for these precious commodities? Will you become inspired yourself? Will you discover the secrets lurking at the heart of the collection and its mysterious Curator? Come unleash your inner artist and find out.
The Incomplete Collection is a highly interactive, immersive show. Your time in the gallery will also depend on what tier of ticket you buy and can last anywhere from 50 minutes to 2 hours. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for your scheduled entry into the gallery, and note that if you arrive more than 5 minutes late, you may not be granted entry into the collection.
