Whether you excel in urban dance styles, traditional and contemporary forms, or are a musician, instrumentalist, or music producer, this creative program is tailored to nurture the next generation of artists.
Because the artistic mind does not operate in terms of categories, but sees everything as connected, they sense our world deeply and struggle to make sense of it by doing anything necessary. Our focus in this transdisciplinary program is not just on understanding the "what" and "why" of art, but also on the "how" through practice, critical review, and thoughtful analysis. By empowering students to master their craft and fostering an understanding of artistic processes, ethics and techniques, we contribute to the growth of the local and international performing arts scene.
The program runs from September 2023 to July 2024, tutored by seasoned local and international mentors and facilitators with ample experience in the creative fields. Graduates will receive certification and have the opportunity to integrate the QDanceCompany as full-time touring artists or the QTribe as freelance artists from its 2024 touring season.
TheQSchool is a refuge for the artistic mind, our school takes full advantage of the reemergence of Lagos as one of the most vibrant and diverse cultural and creative hubs in the world.
This is coming out of 9 exhilarating years of experimenting, mentoring and incredibly impacting the cultural landscape in Africa. A number of world class artistes have emerged from our process, the move to consolidate our experience and evolve a proper learning institution for young creatives in Nigeria and beyond birthed this project.
This year long journey within a cohort of creatives, telling new stories and nurturing a contemporary culture, opens a path towards collaboration amongst diverse disciplines, diverse bodies, diverse voices, and divergent ways of thinking in action.
