Still from FELA!

As part of their National Theatre Live season, broadcasting the best of British theatre live via satellite to Cinema 1, Cornerhouse presents Fela! a provocative and wholly unique hybrid of dance, theatre and music. Fela! explores the world of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies known as Afrobeat), Fela! reveals Kuti’s controversial life as an artist and political activist.
