IFE - (A Nigerian Love Story) / ADISA - 1968: The Year That Never Ended (BASS 09 Festival)

BASS prides itself on giving the public value for money and this double bill is a true example of just that. Part 1 of this bill starts with IFE which means Love in the Yoruba language, and the play centres on the expression of this feeling through rap and dance. The music has been composed by Dele Sosimi and the play has been written by Hip-Hop lyricist Breis. Add to this the dance routine by Christine Oshunniyi and you have a winning formula for an entertaining night.

Part 2 is a one man show which focuses on the voices and movements of 1968 and its relationship to now. Written and performed by poet extraordinaire Adisa, he sets about taking the audience through a journey of time, exploring a myriad of themes, from religion to music and politics.
Adisa has been touring the UK scene and wowing audiences with his wordplay and as a result has won many accolades including New Performance Poet of the Year. There will also be Randolph Matthews present on the night as a special musical guest.
