EMERGENCE, our mentorship program, offers early-career dance and music creators in Nigeria a unique opportunity to develop a new work for the stage, under the mentorship and guidance of internationally acclaimed choreographer Qudus Onikeku. Past Emergence alumni have benefitted from funding support and have graced stages in France, Mozambique (2023), and Ivory Coast (2024).

After the success of EMERGENCE 2023, featuring compelling pieces like ALEKU, NO MAN'S LAND, and IT'S IN MY HEAD, created by Patience Ebute, Joshua Akubo Gabriel, and Deborah Aiyegbeni respectively, the bar has been set high. The first-class enjoyed residency and co-production support from The QDance Center. EMERGENCE 2024 is now accepting applications to induct three to four more talented makers into this transformative program.
