Art is all around us. Whether you hear your favorite song on the radio, walk by a captivating wall mural, or enjoy someone’s body synergy with an Afrobeats song, you experience art every day. Art goes beyond those traditional paintings that come to most people’s minds when mentioned. Art is dance, art is comedy, and art is music. We know that these meeting points elevate our everyday experiences, but it’s easy to lose sight of the overall impact of the arts on communities. It’s easy to make the idea of enjoying art a distant dream. I daresay this is especially applicable in our part of the world. We get so preoccupied with the things we feel we have to do by some rigid standard, that we forget to just be; Take some time to appreciate the little things, absorb experiences that bring us to pleasure in a different way, and just tickle our souls(whatever that means to you).
WHAT IS ART TO YOU?
A splash of colors? The twisting of bodies? Words and movement conducted to communicate a message?
It all means nothing if you don’t jump into your theater seat or grab a brush, turn the volume up, and take the first swing into a dance move.
In the spirit of encouraging action, Bigsam Nation (BSN), an entertainment and event-planning brand has provided a platform for creatives to express their art through dance, comedy, and acts.
M.A.D (1 Man,1 Actor, 1 Dancer) takes its expression from the persona of Bigsam, who as the title implies, embraces different forms of art. This event is a collaborative effort of a group of artists, curators, and entertainment enthusiasts who have come together to create an inclusive and dynamic platform for contemporary acts, entertainment, and comic relief.
Beyond being a physical event, M.A.D UNLEASHED is a movement that seeks to spur people to appreciate and tap into different forms of expression and build human connectivity by experiencing together.
Big Sam Nation organized the inaugural edition of M.A.D UNLEASHED on April 26, 2019, at the T.I. Francis Auditorium, Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA). The event had 526 guests in attendance. The second edition was planned for 2020 but was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was eventually held on February 20, 2022, at Grand Otad Hotel, Ilesha-Benin Expressway, Akure, Ondo State, and had 720 guests in attendance. These events featured exceptional performances from various comedians, dancers, and musicians from across the country, including Red bull’s King Davinci, Yebolistic, Sarah bhlack, Bally Queen, Bboy we, MC Willymouth, MC Flex, Tobi shark, Khash, Damifresh, and others.
