Kenyan athletes are loved and admired worldwide. However, little is known about them as people and what they go through to achieve such great heights. In order to tell the story of the athletes, The Theatre Company of Kenya has developed, in close consultation with the actual runners, a brand new performance called ‘Kimbia’. Curious? have a look: https://vimeo.com/78607846 One performance takes 90 minutes and provides an excellent insight in the Kenyan running culture. Book your own ‘Kimbia’ performance now and show your clients, guests, pupils, students, colleagues, friends and family a great theatre performance which is funny, moving and beautiful!

The show is available at the competitive price of 50,000 ksh and then you can decide how you sell it on to your customers or clients. For more information, contact Syonthi at estheatrecompany@gmail.com
