Kenyan Ogutu Muraya is looking for new approaches to storytelling. He interlaces literature, video projection and storytelling to ask the question of how to deal with the inheritance of a multi-layered and complex colonial history. The solo Fractured Memory is a performance examining the consequences of colonialism and the values of an oppressed culture. Muraya intertwines his own experiences with James Baldwin’s essay ‘Princes and Powers’, which describes a congress of Afro-intellectuals, writers, artists, philosophers and theorists.
