Creative Hustle is a seminar style event that offers young people the opportunity to gain awareness of the breadth of artistic and non-artistic livelihood opportunities available across creative sector value chains.
Creative Hustles also provide opportunities to connect artists with non-artists to help strengthen the creative ecosystem through networking.
The Swamp Dwellers pokes our ribs and hearts. It lays bare before us, our frailties, hypocrisy, complacency and at best futile attempt to crawl out of those self dug dignity holes.
The one who dares to think differently is a homeless blind beggar who is willing to reclaim the soil from the flood but warned not to claim the food of the gods by his host Makuri.
When a society is pervaded by the corrupt political and spiritual leaders and shepherds, where the throng of masses are too docile or consider it blasphemous to seek solutions though rigorous interrogations plays with themes such as this become veritable tools of intervention.
The Swamp Dwellers uproots our very being and shakes it to its placid core. It confirms the fact that the theatre is a social laboratory. It confronts us with a reality we are either too proud or timid to confront. it urges us like Igweizu and the Beggar to QUESTION THE ANSWER!
