"Untitled" by Inua Ellams
Soho Theatre, London
"A poetic and magical story set in Nigeria, Untitled explores the intrinsic relationship of Nigeria to its citizens both in the motherland and in the Diaspora. It is a story of destiny, choices and consequences, and our life’s trajectory being determined by our names." (...)
"Emmanuel Lorien Spinelli use of African drums for sound effect truly brings the play home. And beyond the use of African, he creates the whispers and noise that you get in the forest which culminates in a deep hypnotic sound that transports you to different place in time though you are sitting in a theatre. Untitled as directed by Thierry Lawson and delivered by Ellams is an outstanding and brilliant performance full of energy and zest from a very promising voice in the world of theatre."
