OUR MISSION

To make Nigeria comfortably condusive with aesthetically pleasing and culturally relevant events prior to,during and after the event of your carnival that shall witness the presence of Nations and other important interest groups.

Tharefore,the vast rich colourfull dances that are havestable from all nooks and cranny of CrossRivers state can at this point be relied upon to help salvage,and project the image of the Nation.

We equally hope through this medium to display flag(s) of unity and imressive co-existence that have been the binding factor of our uniqness as a mark of exhbiting our Dance Package (BASKET OF COLOURS) from our repetory as a committed and reputably Dance outfit.

A PEEP INTO THE DISH BASKET OF COLOURS

Our Artistic excursion shall permeat through the African and indeed Nigerian philosopies of life in relation to its cosmic interpretation against the backdrop of the concept of creation,sustenance and continuity,Thereby,juxtaposing the worlds of the unborn with the living and the death.a tropical relationship ingredient of ensuring a continuum.

Hence our choice of the Efik culture(Cross Rivers State)is a perfect reflection to sacredness and circularity that artistically possesed the aesthetics spectacles and panoramic colours that can attract world attention to itself while claiming the imperative of a strong advocacy for Nigerias Arts and culture as a core interest in National development.

THE EFIK CULTURE:AN OVERVIEW

Going by their believe as an aquatic dependent race,their Gods and Goddess are most revered beautifull and elegant especially the marmaids such as Afiawan.Also,very essential to the ethno-social,religious and spiritual concerns art the numerous but dydamic ritual and Masquerade ceremonial practice taht are aesthetically colourfull both in conceps and in practice.

Their physical world view in itself is characterised by the communal and peacefull co-habitation of both sexes man and woman in a concept of flow with their immediate environment.

Thus,our package shall feature most prominently some unpolluted but aesthetically enhanced dances of the Efik culture in our repertory at the tripple Heritage Dance Company such as

1.The maiden Ekombi and Moni Nkim Dances

2.The Masculine Nyok and Ubom dances of War and occupation respectively.

3.The Eting Idem and the Nnuk Masquerade displays and the fascinating Afiawan marmaid/ritual enactment.

Therefore,ours is to make popular,to advocate and to push our culture and Arts into the epicentre of our collective pride as a people and as a Nation.
