Date: February 24, 2018
Venue: Goethe Institut, Nairobi
Time: 6-9 pm

About
Can we value what we don’t know? Is it possible to experience that which we cannot perceive? Can we then touch the soul of the unknown, can we make contact with it, could we listen to it? Can we feel the texture of the unknown? How does it move? From what direction does the unknown come from and to which direction does it go? Can we describe the unknown as still? Is it silent or is there sound and resonance? Is the unknown within time or is time within the unknown? To what extent does what we know contribute to the experience of the unknown?

Of happenings and experiences from the past, present and future, Unknown is an investigative journey through the experiences and places unknown and therefore deemed unperceivable but felt, can be proved, imagined and accepted as fact. The performance was developed by dancer and choreographer Adam Chienjo during a residence programme in Scotland and involves experimental dance and mixed media. It is accompanied by music that was composed specifically for this project by Ronnie Goodman and a video work by Raymond Ndikwe.

Admission: free.

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.
