ABSTRACT

Visual designs in the theatre have received different touches from different scholars and theorists. Some theorists made it relevant while some believe that they are less important. This study examines the indispensability of visual designs (costume and make up, set props and light) in the African theatre in relation to Langbodo production as directed by Rasaki Ojo Bak.are. Through participant observation, this study stressed the importance of these visual designs to the African drama and theatre. This study observes that emphasis should be laid on how these visual designs can affect the African culture and the overall aesthetics of the production. To explain its position, the study of adopts the theory of aesthetics as perceived by Dennis Dutton. This study argues that, in the African theatre some western ideologies that tend that tend to demean the use of visual designs should not be embraced because the music, dance and drama of the African theatre depend on spectacles. If these arguments hold; it would represents the study's moderate contribution to knowledge.
