Dance Performance: Traditional Future by Anuang’a Fernando, May 6 2017 @ Alliance Française


Date: May 6, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française Gardens
Time: 4 pm
Tickets: KES 1,000

Traditional Future: Dance & Choreography by Anuang’a Fernando

About
How to evolve Tradition towards Modernity without obliterating his tracks, without betraying his roots?

Anuang’a, a self taught Kenyan dancer/choreographer is inspired by Maasai songs and ancestral memory. His dance movements are informed by the powerful Maasai rhythmic vocals. He beautifully transforms the age-old undulating movement into a work of art that will stand the test of time.

His most recent show ‘Traditional Future’ was created at the Studio Akili in Lamu and produced by the fashion designer, Pierre Cardin. It has been shown at the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris and at the Theatre Cucinelli in Solomeo, Italy.

Performance: Peace And Love by Prevail Arts Company, May 7 2017 @ Alliance Française Auditorium

peace and love


Prevail Arts Company stages an encore performance of ‘Peace And Love’ at the Alliance Française Auditorium on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 3 pm.

Date: May 7, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
Time: from 3 pm
Tickets: KES 1,200/- at the Gate and KES 800/- advance (Mpesa – 0725 832 607)

About
Peace And Love is a collage of poetry, music and dance – which invites the audience to find, understand and celebrate the self in order to enjoy peace and love with life and each other. The journey through each of the forms in production (poetry, music and dance) trails the story of coming of age from a point of pain, loss, despair and confusion to a point of clarity, growth, hope, peace and love. The production is a metaphor for different stories of our times; from personal experiences, the economy and state of affairs, to corrosion of culture and morality. It all culminates in a powerful resonance with the need to keep hope alive, the need to seek forgiveness and growth, the need to foster peace and love.

The Prevail Arts Company production features poetry written by Joan Sikand performed by Nick Ndeda, Fridah Muhindi and Laura Ekumbo. Live music performed by Serro and Checkmate Mido that borrows a lot from the seventies retro culture webbed together by contemporary dance by Bridgetta Ikwara. The production is produced and directed by Kigondu Martin.

Get your tickets as early; April tickets at 800/-, May tickets at 1000/- and 1200/- at the door. Make your bookings and enquiries on 0780 832607 and Mpesa 0725 832607.
