Unique show in Lagos, Nigeria
We are thrilled to share with you the exhilarating experience we had as performers at the prestigious 125th-anniversary dinner of First Bank. As members of the renowned Shadow Theatre Verba, we had the privilege of captivating the audience with our awe-inspiring show, “Save the Earth,” enhanced with bespoke branding elements. The event took place on the enchanting evening of March 26th, 2019, in the vibrant city of Lagos, Nigeria.
The occasion itself was a celebration of a remarkable milestone for First Bank, which has been an integral part of the financial landscape for over a century. As ambassadors of the art of shadow theater, it was our mission to create an unforgettable experience that would resonate with the bank’s commitment to excellence and social responsibility.
“Save the Earth,” our signature performance, took the audience on an extraordinary journey, blending mesmerizing shadow play with a powerful narrative focused on environmental conservation. Our performers transformed their bodies into living brushstrokes, conjuring intricate shapes and characters that danced across the screen. Through the interplay of light and shadow, we told a compelling story of the beauty and fragility of our planet.
To further enhance the connection between the performance and First Bank, we incorporated carefully designed branding elements throughout the show. The bank’s logo seamlessly emerged from the shadows, subtly reminding everyone present of its enduring legacy and commitment to shaping a sustainable future. This unique fusion of artistry and branding allowed us to align our performance with the bank’s values and message, leaving a lasting impression on the audience.
As the crescendo of our performance approached, the audience’s applause filled the room, echoing their appreciation for the visual spectacle we had created. The entire theater was immersed in a symphony of emotions, as our shadows gracefully urged everyone to reflect on their own role in protecting our planet. It was a poignant moment that underscored the collective responsibility we share in safeguarding the environment for generations to come.
Beyond the captivating show, we were immensely honored to be a part of this significant milestone for First Bank. The evening served as a testament to the bank’s rich history, innovation, and unwavering commitment to its customers. We were delighted to contribute to this momentous celebration by infusing our unique artistic expression with the bank’s overarching message.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to First Bank for entrusting us with this extraordinary opportunity. It is through partnerships like these that we are able to extend the boundaries of our art and touch the hearts of audiences around the world. Additionally, we extend our gratitude to the organizers of the event, who flawlessly orchestrated an unforgettable evening that will be cherished for years to come.
