peter in HongKong

Peter represented Pendo Theatre at the just concluded IDEA conference in Hong Kong.
The response he got from his presentation was overwhelming and he was able to show how the youths of Korogocho are using theatre for transformation.
He was also able to learn from other leading theatre artists and activists who were present during the conference.
Peter was able to forge links with artist from notably Tanzania and Germany.

At the conference Peter also had the opportunity to meet with Profesor Ngugi Wa Thiongo, Kenyas leading literature guru and he got alot of insights from that encounter.

Peter left Hong Kong a happy man having played the historic role of representing us and thanks to everyone who made it possible. special thanks to Jaime and Fish from RRAF Australia who made Peter's stay in HongKong more intresting.
