Movement In Moments is a groundbreaking concept developed by SPAN and its the first of its kind in Nigeria. It is a  pioneering 5 stage show where a Violinist, Poet, Comedian, Singer & Dancer perform simultaneously while painters create masterpieces. 5 stages were set where these different artistes performed to their audience simultaneously and after a set time, they switched stage to perform to another set of Audience, again at the same time. In the background, were these hugely talented painters who created amazing pieces that was completed in a matter of minutes.
