Designed as an indoor evening event, the highlight of the Last Man Standing comes at a time when there is serious environmental degradation in Kenya. The bones of the wildebeest take us to the harsh reality of increased economic activities that undermines the realisation of MDG 7.
On August 6, 2010 in Nairobi, Kenya, The Kenya Institute of Puppet and Theatre present The Last Man Standing Puppetry Performance at the French Cultural Centre at exactly 6 p.m. The Institute will bring the finest puppetry performance dating back to 2070 where life as we know, has become extinct due environmental degradation.
The Last Man Standing Puppetry Performance is an out-of-the ordinary performance from the world of the dead and the living. It is a tale of a brave wildebeest called Mara and recounted by Bones (Mara's Carcass) in the year 2070. It will take the audience through the life cycle of a wildebeest, times of struggle, bravery, feast, famine, life and death.
It is a multi - disciplinary, multi - cultural performance incorporating modern theatrical genre with other art elements such as objects, figures, dance, architecture and installation.
