Dance Performance: FinjeFinje – Simply Dogs, Jul. 19-20 2013 @ Goethe Institut

Simply Dogs
Dates: July 19 & 20, 2013
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium
Entry: Kshs 500

Within the framework Ukenia Dance Theatre Production the project platform FinjeFinje was developed – which is inspired by the fifty years of independence that Kenya will be celebrating in 2013. As the organiser states, this is a very important milestone for the Kenyan people. While questions still linger as to the equality that Kenyans enjoy and/or crave for in their quest for economic freedom, this is a period that is worth celebrating. The platform, therefore, is geared towards sharing the creative power in celebration of the struggles that Kenyans go through as a people rich of diverse cultural understanding.
Simply Dogs is the first of the creative projects within the FinjeFinje platform that shows a contemporary dance piece, comprising 5 dancers from Kenya and DRC.

Participating alongside producer and choreographer Kebaya Moturi will be dancers with varied backgrounds, namely Adam Chienjo, Sarah Kwalah, Jack Bryton and Congolese Doudou Saidi, who brings in a wealth knowledge of dance from Congo.
Technical support will be provided by Eddy Mokaya.

Performance: Saanifu, Feb. 22 2013 @ Goethe Institut

Date: Friday, February 22 2013
Venue: Goethe-Institut Auditorium
Time: 8 pm
Entrance fee: Kshs 300

SAANIFU is a performance that combines dance, music and poetry, focusing on the subject ‘you’. ‘You’ in this sense refers to the audience as subject and concept of the performance. SAANIFU explores the space between the performer and the audience and tries to open a conversation with the audience, its expectations, thoughts, fears, and disappointments. Through contemporary dance, spoken word, and live percussion the relevance of the space that a performer occupies versus the space that a sitting, standing or moving audience occupies shall be questioned.

SAANIFU is a work in progress and will be presented as such. The title of the performance was created by the performers themselves; it is derived from sanaa meaning ‘the arts’ and sanifu which means ‘refined’.

The performers are Isaack Anyanga on percussion and vocals, Evans Nganga on spoken word and dance, and Adam Chienjo on dance choreography and direction.
