Play: Matchstick Men – A Martin Kigondu Play, Nov. 10 2018 @ the Kenya National Theatre


Prevail Arts Company presents ‘Matchstick Men.’ – A Martin Kigondu play.

Date: November 10, 2018
Venue: the Kenya National Theatre
Time: 4 pm
Tickets: KES 1,000/-

SYNOPSIS: Memories shape lives but what happens when one cannot remember? What if our minds choose to block out memories that cause us pain? Set about a year after the country’s post election violence – the play peeps into the journey of Seth and Fathili as they share a fervent session trying to unwrap their entangled memories.

This is in the hope of not only finding a way forward but also retouching fragments of family and perhaps even themselves. What unfolds is an intense drama that questions what it means to be a man, a parent and even a nation; a hard hitting drama about healing and pain and the distance between the two.

Written and Directed by Kigondu Martin – the Prevail Arts Company production stars Immanuel Mulili and Bilal Mwaura.

SYNOPSIS
Of Cords And Discord – is a dark humoured thrilling drama that explores how much baggage family relations can hold. From familial cords of siblings to those of couples, does love always conquer all? Joan has called her sister Jane to rush to her ‘could be breakdown’ after Ken (Joan’s celebrity husband) has been caught in another of his scandals. The sisters time together is a montage of nostalgic and heartfelt moments looped in chilling discoveries of their current predicament. Betrayal cuts deep – but so do knives.

The latest Prevail Arts Company production assures of an ecstatic ride!

Performance: Peace And Love by Prevail Arts Company, May 7 2017 @ Alliance Française Auditorium

peace and love


Prevail Arts Company stages an encore performance of ‘Peace And Love’ at the Alliance Française Auditorium on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 3 pm.

Date: May 7, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
Time: from 3 pm
Tickets: KES 1,200/- at the Gate and KES 800/- advance (Mpesa – 0725 832 607)

About
Peace And Love is a collage of poetry, music and dance – which invites the audience to find, understand and celebrate the self in order to enjoy peace and love with life and each other. The journey through each of the forms in production (poetry, music and dance) trails the story of coming of age from a point of pain, loss, despair and confusion to a point of clarity, growth, hope, peace and love. The production is a metaphor for different stories of our times; from personal experiences, the economy and state of affairs, to corrosion of culture and morality. It all culminates in a powerful resonance with the need to keep hope alive, the need to seek forgiveness and growth, the need to foster peace and love.

The Prevail Arts Company production features poetry written by Joan Sikand performed by Nick Ndeda, Fridah Muhindi and Laura Ekumbo. Live music performed by Serro and Checkmate Mido that borrows a lot from the seventies retro culture webbed together by contemporary dance by Bridgetta Ikwara. The production is produced and directed by Kigondu Martin.

Get your tickets as early; April tickets at 800/-, May tickets at 1000/- and 1200/- at the door. Make your bookings and enquiries on 0780 832607 and Mpesa 0725 832607.
