What does it mean to have sight and be blind? What still, is it like to have no sight but great vision? This is what we are out to explore in KIOTA 3: SEE ME through photography, poetry, theatre, music, and film at the Italian Institute of Culture.
See Me is a creative exploration and dynamic sensitization of what it means to be visually impaired in Nairobi. The show is a trans-media medley of art forms depicting attitudes and perceptions on the matter of sight.
See Me brings together both sighted and Visually Impaired artists.
Kiota, a community that shares and explores different types of creative expressions and Ndio Kweli Events, a company that specializes in creating atmosphere and texture specific to themes of an event, have teamed up to showcase See Me as creatively and dynamically as possible.
Drums in the Dark is an association that is training groups of visually impaired drummers to perform percussive instruments for live performances. Together with Kenya Society for the Blind, they are two organisations working closely with the visually impaired community in the country.
Kiota III: See Me, working closely with the two organisations has created a performance that by including sighted and visually Impaired appeals and can be enjoyed by both in a unique performance of sound, taste, smell, touch as well as colour.
