University lecturer makes inroads in local theatre scene

Zippy Okoth is a phenomenal woman on the theatre scene. Indefatigable too! It’s been less than a month since she staged her own one-woman show at Kenya National Theatre. She starred in Stranger in my Bed from the Diary of a Divorced Woman for one night only. Still, she filled the theatre to full capacity, receiving an extended standing ovation to confirm her status as one of the most dynamic, multi-talented and much-loved creatives around. The deadline for film entries is May 30. The call has gone out for feature films and film shorts, documentaries and animations. All should be focused around this year’s theme of “Creating Dialogue’. But leave alone that Zippy is an organiser, university lecturer, producer, director and actor on stage, in film and TV. She is also the founder and executive director of the Legacy Arts and Film Lab Kenya. It’s through the Legacy Lab that she established the Lake Film Festival and attracted winning films from all over Africa. Plus, her Legacy Lab also holds a variety of workshops and labs for aspiring filmmakers. Several of these will be held during the November Lake Film Festival along with several talks, panels and an awards night that Zippy is bound to make into a dazzling red carpet event! Meanwhile, next week the Kenya Scriptwriters Guild (KSG) will be conducting a free Master Class at Alliance Francaise on Wednesday from 6pm. It will be moderated by the KSG chairman Cajeton Boy. Topics of discussion will range from the basic elements of script writing and production to script formatting and script breakdown. Finally, John Sibi-Okumu’s play, Minister Karibu is being staged March 17and 18 at Kenya National Theatre, directed by Tash Mitambo and produced by Aroji Drama Academy.
