A Single Line: Conversation with Mamaza & James Mweu, Sept. 26 2015 @ Kenya National Theatre

A Single Lane
Date: September 26, 2015
Venue: Kenya National Theatre
Time: 7 pm
Entry: Free Admission

The immediate association one has in relation to a red line is a line whose function is to divide, to mark territories, to separate. ASINGLELINE wants to look at this basic, generic entity of a line and look at it simply from another point of view: a line’s function is also to connect, to link, to bring things which are far from each other geographically and mentally closer together. ASINGLELINE is a straight line drawn from one point which is the city centre all the way to a second point which is a cultural centre building: a theater, a museum or other.

The line is neither a performance, nor an installation, it is a thought put into action, meant to connect, almost literally, the public – society, and their art – choreography and performance, driving MAMAZA and the local team who collaborates with them on the project, to cross the city through its public spaces – squares, streets, parks – and its private ones – domestic houses, shops, restaurants – in order to accomplish the drawing the line. The action of drawing the line is based on the collaboration with the local team as well as with the different people who come across the line. It is therefore a process which occurs through negotiation and the constant search for possible communication.

After its initial realisation of ASINGELINE in Antwerp/Belgium in 2011, MAMAZA has been invited to realise the project in Burkina Faso, South Africa and Nigeria (by the Goethe-Institut), as well as in Lausanne, Switzerland, Jerusalem, Petach Tikva and Haifa in Israel, Maputo in Mozambique and in Venice, Italy. MAMAZA is now continuing their tour through Africa by visiting Cote d`Ivoire, Uganda and Kenya. ASINGLELINE in Nairobi is realised together with Kenyan dancer and choreographer James Mweu.

Admission is Absolutely Free!
