Following the success of his inaugural show in July, Thuita wa Mwangi is back on the streets of Nairobi this Sunday with the second edition of Story za Thuita, taking another look at the city, its streets and the stories they tell, whether written or through the people.
Speaking to Sanaa Post, Thuita revealed that the second edition of this performance includes new elements such as performances by new acts.
We will have a choral group singing. We have poetry and spoken word artistes tackling different themes in the stories we are telling. We also intend to incorporate an African fashion theme, to breathe life into the vibe and African culture of storytelling,”
Thuita looks at himself as a custodian and curator, using this novelty to explore different stories and, uniquely, using the streets as décor, buildings as props and Nairobi as his stage, starting from the Kenya National Theatre and on to a tour of the city streets on a Sunday.
The future is one that looks at the uniqueness a ‘Story za Thuita’ franchise from a 360-degree scope.
We are thinking dynamically, in the future our goal is to take it on stage, film it and package it through other ideas,”
For now, there’s the second edition coming up on Sunday, with two shows, Show ya Ngware (starting at 9am) and Show ya Magizgiz (starting at 4pm), set to reveal the various elements such as the city’s monuments, its political heroes and even the everyday lives of its residents.
The streets are talking…
