    Where are We Now?



    Stonecrabs Theatre Company brings you a week-long festival to celebrate half a century of Nigerian independence. Featuring theatre, film, music, fashion and all things Nigerian!



    The festival will feature a range of activities including an authentic African Market, the premiere of documentary From Biafra to London, a new play by Laurence Olivier Award-winning playwright Bola Agbaje and a theatrical fashion extravaganza!

     

    Where Are We Now is a culmination of Odoya Nigeria!, an oral history project focused on relating the experiences of Nigerian Migrants to London during the Nigerian Civil War (1967 - 1970). The stories of these migrants were uncovered through workshops and interviews led by Bola Agbaje, and are documented in the film From Biafra to England.

     

    Odoya Nigeria! is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
