Critical Commentary

In this interview with Kenyan newspaper, Daily Nation's DAISY OKOTI, Mshai Mwangola ties the importance of performing a story to intellectually engaging with any idea. She states: "Stories are a prism through which we are able to abstract, reflect, and collectively think through the entire range of realities that make up our world. They put flesh onto the skeleton of theory and enable us to go deeper into understanding our world, looking beyond the frame of abstract ideas to the “so what?” and “therefore” that makes us care."
