A repeat performance on Saturday 27 April 2013 will hold as part of the Eti-Osa environmental celebrations programme.
According to Ilaria Chessa of Music Matters and co-founder of the project, ‘The workshop uses spoken word, music, dance and acting to focus on the issue of ‘waste’ environmental issues and human waste (undiscovered, untapped or underutilised talent).”
BorntroWay will be led by seasoned instructors including musician, producer and MTN Project Fame judge, Ade Bantu; actor, dance and performance artist Segun Adefila; and AJ Dagga Tolar, spoken word poet, front-line activist and social crusader.
