Personal highlights

  1. Goethe Institut: number one location for cultural happenings in Nairobi
  2. Performance Series: modern approach to mix traditions and new media
  3. Dance Performance: great mixture of traditional and contemporary style
  4. Digital Media: some pre-recorded dance scenes as well as 3d renderings
  5. Discussion: many compliments, but also harsh critique, misunderstood art!
