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.
The event will be hosted by the lovely Miss Kenya, USA, Angela Wambui and will feature songs from Ricky’s debut album, TUCHEZE as well as new compositions that he has been working on.
Tickets are only KES. 300 & will be available at the gate on the day.
