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.

Until: June 30, 2016

Pots and Identities: The language of clay
Pottery is one of the most enduring artifacts in the archaeological record. It has been used the world over to provide relative dates for sites and also to reconstruct life ways of the prehistoric people.
This exhibition is the archaeologist version of the Kenyan history and the contemporary practices of potters/ artists through the language of clay. In both cases, the identity of the potter is easily discernible from either the style or decorations of the pot.
In some cases, archaeological data cannot stand alone and archaeologists have used present day practices to interpret their data. Some of the comparative data include studies on pottery functions, pottery making technologies, innovation and diffusion…
Outstanding archaeological and traditional pottery alongside contemporary works by Magdalene Odundo, Mzee Edward Njenga, Waithira Chege and Emmanuel Ondif among others.
During the exhibition opening there will be a book launch of Edward Njenga’s autobiography ‘Telling it in Clay’ written by Lynette Kariuki.
