Kiu, is a Swahili word for thirst, a diverse narrative, signifying the critical age of drought in Africa, and the significance of preserving water. Inspired by the ancient African rain dance ‘Kiu’ is a plea for rainfall. A poignant and unbridled quest for redemption to quench the thirst that seem to be destabilizing humanity. This thirst is highlighted as human’s great desire leading to dystopia and civil unrest. ‘Kiu’ is a profound and moving dance experience. Raw, sensitive, intense, hostile, sensuous, meditative and soul-searching. Performed to hauntingly beautiful live Afrocentric music.
