Cut Off My Tongue is a collection of dramatized texts that incorporate poetry, spoken word, narrative, music, dance and movement. The piece deals with interrelated stories about life in Kenya grouped around tribe and ethnicity, African womanhood, love and desire, political critique, tradition and genealogy. Although the main focus of the project is Kenya, the themes Namwalie addresses cut across post-colonial Africa and the continent’s struggle to deal with the question of “Nation-State”. Namwalie will develop the third part of the project to complement two parts previously written.
