A l’ombre de Coré’ with French Dancers at the Godown Art Centre, Oct. 8 2016, @ the GoDown Arts

Date: October 8, 2016
Venue: the GoDown Arts Centre
Time: 5pm
Free Entry

A l’ombre de Coré’ (‘In the shadows of Kore’ – the Greek Maiden) is a poetic hip hop dance by the French choreographer Mickaël Six and the talented dancer Sami Loviat-Tapie. The choreography presents a poetic dialogue between the body and light, between the real and the virtual. Like the Goddess Kore, the dancers take it in turns to confront their shadows.

The delicate music and the fluidity of movement make this a truly captivating show, an ingenious display of poetry in motion.

Nzilani Is Back! Night of Poetry, Drama, Dance & Music, Sept. 17 2016 @ Kenya National Theatre

Date: September 17, 2016
Venue: Kenya National Theatre
Time: 7 for 8 pm
Tickets: KES 1,000

Nzilani is back… public demand – Nzilani takes us back along his journey through life. The highs and the lows; the beaten paths and the twists in the road; the major milestones and the little things. This journey will make you laugh, will remind you of a past, will make you cry and it will make you think. Through poetry, drama, dance and music Elsaphan Njora will dare to take you where few are willing to go.

This is the third show that Njora is staging this year with direction from June Gachui and features by Kendi Nkonge, Tim Nightway, Charity Nyambura and Brian Ogola – it is slated to be the biggest so far.
Njora is on a mission to raise a generation that will aspire ‘to do’ and not just sit and watch and his instrument is his poetry from his 51 piece anthology set for publishing in November 2016.

“Nzilani will not leave you the same” – states the artist about his show. The show will be held at the Kenya National Theatre on the 17th of September. Doors open at 7.00pm and the main show will start at 8.00pm.
