iMbaka - Listen to The Stories of Kenya

Nairobi, Kenya

Experiență organizată de Alexander

  1. 2,5 ore
  2. Organizată în Engleză

Ce vei face

Two hours of tales and music that will introduce guests to the history and folklore of diverse Kenyan communities through sessions of interactive musical storytelling. Two hours or thereabouts, but do not be afraid that it is too short - stories stretch time, did you know?
Other things to note
A story is not a definite thing. It shifts shapes, changes colours. It can be short or endless - song or dance. Expectations are heavy, leave them behind. Bring an open mind. https://bit.ly/2RrAzeh

I hold a degree in Creative Arts Theatre/Film from Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya where I also minored in Literature. I've been twice shortlisted for the Commonwealth short story prize and been published in ‘Let’s Tell This Story Properly’ as well as in several online literary journals including Jalada Africa. My storytelling attempts to capture and develop upon the African imagination as revealed in local stories of myth and legend and to apply it to contemporary settings and stories as well as African futurescapes.

Unde vei fi

'Muringa Studios' is our stage, it is one of Nairobi's secret performance spaces; an electronic dance music haven by night and lately, our storytelling theatre by day. It is cosy, full of art, and comfortable. Come and discover it for yourself. You are expected :-)

Alexander was a very good host! He’s a great story teller with an amazing personality. He’s cracks a few jokes here and there. Kept up very entertained.

This was a unique experience one I have not found in other countries. Alexander told us two stories based on the Kenyan tribal traditions and the Kenyan folklore. It was interesting from the beginning to the end and I really wanted to see how the story evolves. It was interactive experience with the audience and it was mostly like a group of friends listening to an interesting story the atmosphere was very relaxed. Higly recommended.

Excellent story telling. We had a wonderful time with Alex - his stories were amazing. He was very flexible and made the experience fit our interests. He is also a very interesting guy involved in a number of artistic projects. We would highly recommend this experience.

Wow, Alex, with his smokey voice, made me dive deep into his ancestor's world. Time flew while I listened a historical crime story. His story had everything - a superhero, drama, lessons, love and war. Also the location, an artist's club, although a bit hard to find, was a great fit and supplemented the stories at it's best. I expected nothing and got well rewarded! Thanks Alex, always again. Kat

Alexanderis a talented storyteller, but also a mindful artist and multifaceted creator. He seems to read his audience well: as a fellow theatre artist, we had an easy but spirited conversation that eventually segwayed into traditional story arches with meaning and a stirring that followed me home. In a city that can feel like an endless sales pitch to foreigners, Alexander was refreshingly genuine. Go hear his stories!

What a magical experience! Alex' stories took the guests on an imaginary journey through the streets of Nairobi and into the villages of his ancestors. The event offered unique insight into Kenyan culture, folklore and city life. Warmly recommended!
