NIGHT OF THE SPOKEN WORD (NSW7) is the 7th edition of the most epic Spoken Word Event in Nigeria. Hosted by renowned Poet, DIKE CHUKWUMERIJE, the NSW Show is famous for its creativity and innovative use of Performance Poetry as a tool for entertainment.
Performance Poetry is not the simple recitation of poems. It is an expressive art form that combines the disciplines of traditional poetry with the power and charisma of dramatic performance. Because it is designed to be verbally communicated, Performance Poetry tends to be easier to grasp than typical poetry, but retains the same capacity for depth, and the same dedication to the masterful use of language. As a result, it can be as mentally stimulating as listening to Martin Luther King, and still as visually engaging as watching Charlie Chaplin
At NSW7, Dike Chukwumerije will be presenting his Poetry-For-Theatre production, ‘MADE IN NIGERIA’ in commemoration of the 56th anniversary of Nigeria’s independence. ‘MADE IN NIGERIA’ is comprised of 20 theatrical poems, thematically linked and seamlessly connected by narration, music, dance and drama, telling in 120 minutes the story of key moments in our 102 year history as Nigerians.
This one-of-a kind Independence Weekend show gives you a chance to attend on any of three days – 30th September, 1st October or 2nd October. Or you can make your weekend absolutely awesome by attending all 3 performances.
