Event description

Description

Kayd presents the new play 'Arawelo' created by Queen of Sheba International. Arawelo is the first play of its kind, a modern retelling of a Somali classic; the evening concludes with a performance by the spectacular Aar Manta.

Introducing a new commission in 2018, this newly commissioned play titled Arawelo about the famous Somali feminist is a folklore that combines traditional Somali storytelling with that of a contemporary way of looking at the story from the diaspora. This will be followed by a Q&A with the cast, director and writer and the audience and a live musical performance by Aar Manta.
