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

Time: from 3 pm

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.
