Kimbia: based on the thrills, temptations, desires and fears of Kenyan runners from Kathelijn Fenger-leenders on Vimeo.

Synopsis
The world knows Kenya as a running nation. Since its inception in the 1950’s, athletics has grown into a nationalist sport- a symbol of national unity and pride. Kenyan runners are loved and admired worldwide. However, little is known about them as people and what they go through to achieve such great heights. In order to tell the story of the athletes, The Theatre Company of Kenya has developed, in close consultation with the actual runners, a brand new performance called ‘Kimbia’, which literally means, “run”. ‘Kimbia’ is an exciting, innovative and collaborative theatrical show about the life and times of Kenyan athletes.

The five plays that make up ‘Kimbia’ are: The Race by Cajetan Boy, When the Door Opens by Joseph Murungu, Just a Man by Edward Nthiga, Doping by Ogutu Muraya, Usiguskong (which means ‘Don’t Look Back’) by Joseph Gichinga
Directed by Liz Enane and Mido Dembede. Original music composed and arranged by the cast and directors. Movement and dance choreography by Joseph Gichinga

All actors are, just like the runners, Kenyan talent, professionally trained at facilities of The Theatre Company around the country.and show your clients, guests, pupils, students, colleagues, friends and family a great theatre performance which is funny, moving and beautiful!
