Cut off My Tongue

Storymoja Nairobi 2012, 
Having toured in Kenya, Uganda and the UK, this fiercely provocative show will leave you speechless! It rants, sweats, bellows and breaks into song and dance as it explores the truths that shape modern Africans. The show is about our beliefs, the way we behave and why. Woven into music and dance, Sitawa Namwalie's dramatised poetry is moving and frighteningly honest. It is politics -- and love -- that bites as it teases! Tickets 2000/=
