[Re]claiming Performance Space in Kenya

edited by Kimani Njogu

Getting Heard: (Re)claiming Performance Space in Kenya is the third in a series of publications on art, culture and society released by Twaweza Communications. The aim is to bring to the fore conversations taking place in Kenya about identity, creativity, nationalism and the generation of knowledge. The series is also concerned with the pursuit of freedom through the arts, media and culture. The work illustrates that the performance space is shown to offer wider possibilities for knowledge creation and that in post-colonial Africa, post-colonial Africa political leaders have consistently performed over their subjects at local and national levels. Amongst the topics discussed are the Kenya National Theatre, Story Telling, Radio Theatre, Translation, African Languages, Music, Media and Mungiki, a politico-religious group. The volume throws light on understanding post-colonial Africa, through performances.
