DAI VERSE: POETRY FOR THE PEOPLE



Daiverse poetry by ngartia poster

The luminous and multifaceted Ngartia takes to the stage once again after a (near!) ten-year hiatus from poetry. Returning to his performance poetry roots, Ngartia’s long awaited and eagerly anticipated one-time - well, two-time, show, will give a riveted audience spoken word pieces spanning the length of his career, weaved together by live music.

This artistic reintroduction, in varied formats, covers a range of themes. It will be performed in English, Sheng’, and Kiswahili, assisted by the musical stylings of Chemutai Sage, Vini Ngugi (TLVSN), Timothy Arinaitwe (TLVSN), M³, Septad and Sho.

You can buy tickets here, for the first show from 2 pm, or the second show from 6 pm, on April 21, 2024.

The show will be directed by the talented Nyokabi Macharia, of Big Mouth (Netflix), Country Queen (Netflix) and County 49 (Showmax) fame, who is the actor, director, and producer behind Shorts From Africa. Producing the show are Shiko Ngure, and Ciru Njoroge.
