A few months ago, we lost loved ones in a gory attack at the Garissa University. In 2014, the same thing happened in Mpeketoni. Barely a year before, Westgate Mall had gone down in smoke, rocket propelled grenades and gunshots. In 2008, we had lost more friends, colleagues and relatives to pangas, petrol bombs, clubs and bare hands.

We keep making the same mistakes as a country. We keep forgetting what we have been through and in so doing, risk having it happen again.

In this production, some of Nairobi's finest and most promising performance artists seek to explore these incidents. Does the national amnesia mean the blood of the dead, injured and affected is in our hands too?
