Congratulations to Bolanle Austen-Peters, lawyer turned entertainment business owner, who recently unveiled her new theater in Lagos, Nigeria. Austen-Peters is best known for her arts, education and cultural center called Terra Kulture which she launched in 2003. Last year, she added the title of producer to her name after successfully producing the movie 93 Days, a movie about the Ebola virus in Nigeria and the men and women who helped prevent the virus from going viral.
Read the press statement of her new venture below and check out some fun pictures from the launch:
“Arts mogul and top producer, Bolanle Austen Peters has launched the 400 seater, state of the art theater dubbed the “Terra Kulture Arena”. The arena is the first privately owned technology equipped modern arts theater in the whole of Nigeria and has already broken records with its two-day launch on the 25th and 26th of March 2017 which hosted over 1,200 theater enthusiasts.
Regarded as the all in one center for arts and culture aficionados, the space was built to serve a significant need in the theater industry as only a few places in Nigeria provide the appropriate ambiance, for Nigerians and foreigners alike to experience Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage.
Guests were treated to drinks by Scavi and Ray winery and an exquisite array of canapés in the new ultra-modern lounge and the audience was thrilled with short clips from Saro the musical, Wakaa the musical and BAP productions’ newest feature, Fela and the Kalakuta queens which will show throughout December.
There was also a special rendition of the soundtrack of Wakaa by soul singer, Brymo.
In his address, Minister of Information and culture, Hon. Alhaji Lai Mohammed, commended Austen-Peters and pledged the support of the Federal Government to boost art and culture in the country.
