Eko Moves captures the beauty of dance, movement, time and space within the vibrant, always thriving megacity of Lagos. This impressive body of work is a visual chronicle of a two year journey during in which Ayeni Babaeko challenged dancers of the Nigerian dance group, the Society for the Performing Arts of Nigeria (SPAN), to leave the comfort of their mirrored studios, and expertly lit stages, and dance through the markets, the bus stops, the beaches, the under-bridge-spaces, the water highways and shanty towns of Lagos for the people of Eko.
