Lagos is set to experience the most sophisicated dance production of the decade on Monday December 24th (Christmas Eve), at the prestigious Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos as Nollywood's top talent, Monalisa Chinda stuns Nigeria's theatre and performance world with the maiden edition of her world class 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. 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, Uche Jombo, Bimbo Akintola, Saeon, Bovi, Monalisa Chinda and many more. This benefit dance production will showcase even more theatrical elements and aesthetics as the Nollywood stars will alsp deliver 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.”
