‘Mannequin’ Performance’ – (Collaboration with Musician Sigu, and the late Artist Ngene Mwaura aka Sheepgoat )
We are a collection of our past selves, represented by the mannequins. The mask hides our true identity. The performance focuses on dealing with past traumas in order to understand our present behaviour.
I dance in a ‘dera’, a free-flowing African dress, on my neck is a long Maasai ornament that moves with a crackling sound.
My face is covered with a golden mask.
The energy released made me feel like a new being; and the audience expressed a deep connection with the performance.
