Date and Time (UK time):
19/11/2021 18:30-20:00

Watch the Q&A session that follow the live screening of Tales of the Accidental City, with its director and actress, Ma´mouna Jallow.

Tales of the Accidental City is a 90-minute audio play in which four residents of Nairobi accused of various misdemeanors find themselves stuck together in a three-day anger management class. Diana, Jacinda, Louis Njoroge, and Sarah Obama must explain what got them there, and with the help of their quirky counsellor Rose, find a way to heal the wounds inflicted on them by life in the crazy city of Nairobi.

Through the characters, we are invited to explore Nairobi 120 years after its 'creation'. Through this portrait of Nairobi, the play tells the story of many African cities challenged by population growth, economic disparities and social injustice.

This event was hosted by the research group iPIC (Intersectionalities - Politics - Identites - Cultures), in collaboration with the MA GMM 'Activism and Resilience' programme. The iPIC research group is concerned with the investigation of cultures, identities and politics from non-traditional perspectives and with an emphasis on positionality.

The recording of the event will premiere on YouTube on Friday 19th.
