First Edition of Micro Theatre Festival, Apr. 12 2018 @ Kenya National Theatre

Date: April 12, 2018
Venue: Kenya National Theatre
Time: 6 and 8.30 pm

Art in miniature: is micro-performance the way forward?

The Kenya National Theatre, the Embassy of Spain in Kenya and the Cultural Routes Foundation have the pleasure of inviting you for the First Edition of Micro Theatre Festival.

Two dates, two hours and a half, 12 performances and FREE ADMISSION.

Don’t miss that chance! Be interactive! Watch in details!

Micro-performance, as the name suggests, is not about thinking big. Often put on in tiny spaces (think quaint cafes and living rooms) to small audiences (from two or three to two dozen), the allure of micro-performance is about quick and nimble productions unconstrained by large-scale planning, and free from the pressure to sell hundreds of seats night upon night.

The Vagina Monologues
An Obie Award-winning whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone, The Vagina Monologues introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six-year-old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her granddaughter, a Bosnian survivor of rape, and a feminist happy to have found a man who “liked to look at it.”

Twenty years ago, Eve Ensler’s play The Vagina Monologues gave birth to V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and gender non-conforming).

Directed by Kaz and Produced by The Arts Canvas / Mumbi Kaigwa
