Past dates

IJAKADI OKAN builds a bridge between the traditional legends and stories of the Nigerian Yorùbá culture and the present, between the metropolises of Hamburg and Lagos.

In interplay with live music and poetry, Israel Akpan Sunday choreographs the West African tradition of collective storytelling and transfers it into a contemporary context. Moving between traditional and modern African dances, he focuses on the »inner struggles« (translation of the title from the Yorùbá) and human challenges such as dealing with stereotypes and different forms of knowledge transfer.

Israel Akpan Sunday

is committed to the further development of Nigeria's multicultural resources through his artistic work. Live music, poetry and breaking stereotypes are always part of his creative processes.
