Nairobi Performance Series – June Edition, Jun. 18 2016 @ Goethe Institut Nairobi

Date: June 18, 2016
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium, Nairobi
Time: 6 pm
Entry: Free

About
The Nairobi Performance Series is a co-production platform that aims to support new productions with a cross-disciplinary working approach. This approach will be enhanced this year by ways of dedicating every edition to specific genre. Therefore the June edition will feature choreographers and photo-/videographers. The series will be held 3 times a year, each edition producing new works, which is inspired by intensive processes initiated by cross-genre meetings.

The series provides an opportunity for performers, choreographers and creators to develop ideas, build on their skills and collective experiences to find new working models/approaches.

The selected work to be performed is called Mindscapes and was developed by Adam Chienjo, Dina Abok, Lenny Njagih and Melisa Allela.

Admission is free!

About
The sixteenth edition of the Lusophone Film Fest Nairobi will be on the 7-May as of 5pm at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi. We will have a Portuguese documentary about the family left behind when people emigrate, a Brazilian short about a man tormented by his national football team loss in the 1950, and a Mozambican feature film about keeping the balance between the world of the living and the one of the spirits:

– Antonio, Dashing Antonio (Portugal, 2015, Ana Maria Gomes)
– Barbosa (Brazil, 1988, Jorge Furtado and Ana Luiza Azevedo)
– The Last Flight of the Flamingo (Mozambique, 2010, João Ribeiro)

Recognised with international awards at film festivals around the globe, the cinema from the Portuguese-speaking world is still mostly unknown to the general public. This 240 million people linguistic community is a thriving one, promoting over 80 film festivals and cinema awards every year, with movies mostly consumed in the respective countries.

The Lusophone Film Fest is a showcase of the diversity of film production in the eight Portuguese-speaking countries spread across 4 continents. The festival presents multiple works (documentaries, animations, shorts and feature films), in sessions of several films from the different countries.

The event is free of charge. More info in https://www.facebook.com/Lusophonefilmfest
