The ding-dong charade of the Edo State Council for Arts and Culture Performing Troupe (ESCFAACPT) cannot be separated from the establishment’s vacillating condition since its inception.

This study is based on Richard Schechner’s performance studies and historicity, and it employs a historical-analytic method. It claims that since the mid-1990s, successive governments have suppressed performance and creativity in the ESCFAACPT through neglect and disinterest. As a result, the troupe has become ineffective, ineffective, and incapable of adapting to modern arts and cultural administration, management, and performance techniques, which is a necessary tonic for its success and survival in contemporary performance.
