About
TNR Trust, a registered Trust in Kenya, was established in 2015 following growing concerns over the stray dog and cat population in regards to animal welfare, disease control and population management.

The Trust aims to combine education on rabies and animal welfare with affordable rabies vaccinations and spay/neutering. This will curb the burgeoning dog and cat population and reduce the spread of the fatal disease rabies. This will, in turn, reduce the human mortality rate and improve community health.

Sitawa Namwalie is exploring the many ways of telling stories. She is a poet, playwright and performer. She wrote “Cut off My Tongue” (2008), “Homecoming” (2011), and “Silence is a Woman” (2014) which won Kenya’s Sanaa Theatre Awards Best Spoken Word and Poetry in the same year. Her second play “Room of Lost Names” has been performed to critical and popular acclaim at the Kampala International Theatre Festival and Ubumuntu Arts Festival Kigali.

Aleya Kassam is a Kenyan reader, writer and performer. She has been published in Jalada, Mail and Guardian Africa. She blogs her musings at http://www.chanyado.wordpress.com, which was nominated for Best New Blog at the Blog Awards Kenya 2015. She has performed in ‘Stories from the Mall: A Westgate Memorial’, and acclaimed shows ‘Silence is a Woman’ and ‘Cut off my Tongue’ amongst others.

Performance: Saanifu, Feb. 22 2013 @ Goethe Institut

saanifu
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.
