“Re-Imagined Storytelling” Returns To Nairobi

After two years of touring in Uganda, Ghana, Egypt, UK, Scotland, Sweden, the Reimagined series returns – with a final show in the city where it all started – Nairobi.

The series is about adapting novels by African writers into storytelling performances, with the aim of encouraging even more platforms for our own stories.

Previous versions have seen storytelling from artists such as Patricia Kihoro, Rehema Nanfuka, Aleya Kassam, Sitawa Namwalie, Mumbi Kaigwa and Raya Wambui.

This latest edition will see in action on stage, June Gachui, Neno Kali and Maimouna Jallow adapting three novels:

MAID in SA is a tongue-in-cheek peep into the relationship between aids and their employers in South Africa.

The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives is an adaptation that delves into friendship, love, betrayal, and society’s perceptions of women.

Can We Talk focuses on a man who is tired of his life and the expectations placed upon him by society.
