To escape from himself the servant must leap walls, get drunk, forget his condition.
He must live alone, without witness. He dares be himself only in solitude.”

Between Us: Exhibition at the GoDown Art Centre
In this work, Kyambi explores new paradigms for interdisciplinary collaboration by working with artist and choreographer James Mweu and dancers from the Kunja Dance Theatre to stage a choreographed performance, creating material that examines contemporary viewpoints on themes that are central to her practice: the body, gender issues and social perception.

The performance isn’t the most important thing for me. The performance is just a trigger. The performance leaves an imprint.
