Description…

KigeziNdoto: A Hook for Dreams was originally written for an 11-city tour of Europe (Wereld Muziek Theatre Festival) in 2006. Following this highly acclaimed tour and a further four years of fundraising, a re-worked version toured East Africa, with more than 30 performances being staged in Kenya and Tanzania in 2010.

KigeziNdoto is the second story in a trilogy, which includes The Voice Of A Dream (2001) and They Call Me Wanjikũ (2007). The music, narratives and dances explore the questions Africans have been asking themselves in the recent past: why don’t we consider ourselves to be important players in the global society? KigeziNdoto is a musical and narrative response to these questions from a personal African perspective.
