performingbordersRADIO: Episode 3 with Untethered Magic | July 2023

This month performingborders shares an audio collage of their time working with Untethered Magic, from visiting their space on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya in February 2023 during a two-week residency, to ongoing digital conversations on transnational collaboration. Untethered Magic, run by artists Syowia Kyambi, Kibe Wangunyu, and Ciaran Nash, is both a home and an independently run residency space that encourages growth, independence, and processes of unlearning. It is a space being set up to live with the land, thinking through sustainability in environmental and social terms.

During their time collaborating, performingborders and Untethered Magic have discussed ideas of place, sustainability, and live art, thinking through the creation of alternative spaces for experimental work. In this show, they share conversations between the two collectives, alongside readings and short performative interventions by artists who joined them during the residency in Kenya including Nekoye Ommeh, Ngwatilo Mawiyoo, Esther Kamba, and Joseph Kanyenje.
