Maimouna Jallow & Mara Menzies

Portraits of 21st Century Africa

Two Kenyans, Nairobi-based Maimouna Jallow and Edinburgh-based Mara Menzies, have enthralled audiences from Scotland to Nigeria with contemporary performances of African stories. Today they perform sections from their works, including Jallow’s adaptation of Lola Shoneyin’s The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives, and Menzies’s stories of young people from Africa who take control of their destinies. Presented in partnership with the Scottish International Storytelling Festival.
