Through the many different deliberations of how SPANFEST 2015 was going to take shape, one thing was constant on everyone’s mind and it was that Nigeria was going to be shown what real performance art is, and how thrilling and exciting it really can be. Thus, “Movement in Moments” was created.
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.
