Fifty Years of Independence: Many African nations have been celebrating this milestone in the recent past. But is the continent truly independent? That is the question asked by Saidi Doudou, the dancer from Kinshasa, in his self-choreographed piece Five times Ten, Shakes the Head. The dance presentation launched the Nairobi Performance Series at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi, a project that supports new, innovative dance productions.
