Nigerian-German production 'Ghosting' for premiere

After a successful world virtual premiere last weekend, a Nigerian-German production, Ghosting by Footprints of David and Monster Truck in coproduction with Ballhaus Ost, will premiere its Nigerian leg virtually on March 20.

Ghosting was inspired by the traumatic experience of the covid-19 pandemic that rocked the world – breaking every connection of the everyday human relationship under the guise of the new normal.

Typified by the veering course of the human race – a different approach ensues – a new string of creativity laced with an unconventional act is conceived.

It is a production of two different continents that breeds spirituality rather than absenteeism of physical touch. Ghosting divines, a translocation of the cast to a Patmos of solitude, primal existence and experimentation of newness.

The lead role, Sahar Rahimi in Germany reveals the masked alter-egos of her imagination – entrenched in the soul of 7 other performers in faraway Nigeria.  Sahar pours her heart in cast in other places – with reflective moods foreshadowing images culled from Berlin and Lagos respectively.

The message carried on in a younger cast, Anjoola Faniyi. Monster Truck (Germany) and Footprints of David Arts (Nigeria) uniquely juxtapose characters in seamless chain of performance brings to life the import of Ghosting.
