Little Kesho


Isyho Arts Centre
Kigali (Ruanda)

for everybody 10+

Germany premiere

Kesho in Swahili means tomorrow, and in this musical show essential and urgent themes are addressed to meet planetary challenges: climate change, the erosion of biodiversity, the non-respect and the absence of protection / preservation of our environment, pollution, overexploitation leading to the impoverishment of the soil, the air, and above all the choices and the responsibilities to be taken by all of us and even more so by younger generations. Little Kesho is a musical interrogation, a poetic encounter, a mysterious journey, an opportunity to share our views of the world, but above all as a temporary inhabitant of this beautiful planet. There is no planet B.

Duration: ca. 60 minutes/mixed language (i.a. English, French, Suaheli)
