Desmond Elliot, Kate Henshaw, Bimbo Akintola & More Stars to Perform at the Maiden Edition of Monalisa Chinda’s Dance Production “Project Help: A Dance for Life!”



Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda is set to stun Nigeria’s theatre and performance world with the maiden edition of her dance production titled Project Help: A Dance for Life.

This is an enactment of contemporary dance powered by Bailamos Dance Company, an ensemble that has treated Nigerian aristocrats, elites and technocrats to great performances as directed by choreography wizard Bunmi Olunloyo.

But Project Help promises more. According to the organisers, “it is a night that will parade the best of Nollywood stars in an amazing dance-style form that would leave the audience spellbound“.

The event would feature an array of Nigeria’s biggest actors including Desmond Elliot, Kate Henshaw, Segun Arinze, Bimbo Akintola, Bovi, Monalisa Chinda and many more. This benefit dance production will showcase even more theatrical elements and aesthetics as the Nollywood stars will add the flavour of their artistic skills with electrifying performances and recitals that will intensify the tempo of the Christmas dance production.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the event, Monalisa said, “I’ve been nurturing the dance production idea for quite a while but my several engagements wouldn’t avail me enough time, so I kept developing it. I’ve always wanted a production, away from the norms, where people can experience classical recitals at its very best. While this remains a great way to celebrate Christmas with loved ones, I also see it as a powerful means of awakening the dwindling culture of theatre in Africa at large. We’ve been working on this for a while and it promises to be a memorable atmosphere of unlimited ecstasy, joy and bliss.

You can’t afford to miss it!

I have seen her perform at a few shows and I have to say she is good. Can’t wait to see this ‘nollywood’ ensemble. Hope they don’t fall off the stage with some two left feet things. Lol.

    This is definitely going to be a hot show . I know Bunmi of Bailamos and the girl is a great teacher and performer. I’ve taken classes with her. I know she is a member of Spirit of David but I am sure spirit of David did NOT initiate Bailamos DAnce Company. The girl is a hard worker abeg. Must definitely watch this show.
