Screening: CrossCulture’s Art Series Concludes with MUNCH – 150, Jun. 21& 22 2014 @ Brookhouse School & National Museum Respectively
22nd – Louis Leakey Auditorium, National Museum of Kenya, Museum Hill
Brought to you by CrossCulture XC presents MUNCH 150 Hailed as a “once-in-a-lifetime show” Global interest was huge – not least as a result of one of his four The Scream paintings having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million. Many know Edvard Munch as the man who painted The Scream, but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived.
Munch 150 was co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. With 220 paintings on show, it brought together the greatest number of Munch’s key works in one place.
Once again XC bring to you, here in Nairobi, behind-the-scenes footage to show some of the process of putting the exhibition together — as well as providing an in-depth biography of a man who lived from the mid-19th century right through to the German occupation of Norway in the Second World War. Special guests will also offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow. Munch 150: A superb show and a fantastic event film.
The 90-minute film provides a Full High Definition walkthrough of the exhibit, in depth commentary about featured pieces and a “behind the scenes” look at the process of putting the exhibition together.
The screening with be followed by a conversation with local Kenyan artist Shabu Mwangi whose work is evocative of Munch’s subject matter and style.

Screening: Frankenstein – A Danny Boyle Production from the National Theatre, May 18 & 24 2014 @ National Museum & Brookhouse School Respectively
CrossCulture XC brings you the second production in its Theatre Series: National Theatre Live’s broadcast of Frankenstein is coming to NAIROBI. Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre London and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.
Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs a sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, CBS’s Elementary) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.
