Part of the proceed of the will go towards the Action Foundation
The Action Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization in Kenya that enables children, living with physical & mental disabilities, in low income and marginalized areas to lead a healthy and dignified lives.
We are creating a barrier free society for children living with disability through our rehabilitation centres and awareness generation in the local communities. Children who live in poverty and have a disability are unlikely to access therapy and care when they need it because the options available are expensive and inaccessible.
Our approach makes it possible for children living with disability to access therapy and care where and when they need it the most. The direct involvement of the parents and community members makes our projects self-sustaining and low-cost.
Its not only going to be an entertaining night but also a charitable one, so come one, come all and let’s make this happen.

Kenyan dancer and choreographer, Fernando Anuang’a, returns to the Alliance Française stage with his new choreography ‘Romo’ (Luo for ‘meeting’). Renowned for his shows A journey into the future and Indo-Masai dance, Anuang’a teams up with the Ohanglaman Makadem (on nyatiti and kalimba) and the guitarist Isaac Gem to present a meeting of tradition and contemporary dance and music.
Anuang’a is part of a new generation of Kenyan contemporary choreographers developing a new dance language rooted in African dance and culture.
A unique spectacle where traditional Luo music and the timbre of Makadem’s voice accompany the undulating movements of Anuang’a.
