Je Vous Aime Aussi – Contemporary Dance Performance by Dalmas Otieno, Jul. 17 2014 @ Michael Joseph Centre
Part of the proceed of the will go towards the Action Foundation
The Action Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization in Kenya that enables children, living with physical & mental disabilities, in low income and marginalized areas to lead a healthy and dignified lives.
We are creating a barrier free society for children living with disability through our rehabilitation centres and awareness generation in the local communities. Children who live in poverty and have a disability are unlikely to access therapy and care when they need it because the options available are expensive and inaccessible.
Our approach makes it possible for children living with disability to access therapy and care where and when they need it the most. The direct involvement of the parents and community members makes our projects self-sustaining and low-cost.
Its not only going to be an entertaining night but also a charitable one, so come one, come all and let’s make this happen.
Elephants are in danger and their story needs to be told. Pamoja Dance Group – an inclusive integrated dance company of dancers with and without physical disability – will be telling this tale through dance and movement in a beautiful, disturbing contemporary dance performance.
The main characters of the dance piece, Elephant Stories, are in fact not elephants at all, but rather village story tellers.
The dancers tell the story of the present day situation of elephants in Kenya and many other places in Africa. Like the traditional story teller, who plays many roles in order to tell his tale, the Pamoja Dancers, while dancing the part of the story teller, at times physically transform themselves into elephants, at other times poachers or park rangers.
