MARA MENZIES

Mara is a narrative artist, drawing on her rich, dual Kenyan/Scottish cultural heritage, to create worlds that explore contemporary issues through legend, myth and fantasy. With her own vision of the beauty, history and aspirations of people of African heritage, she fuses ancient and modern in an intoxicating experience where the audience takes centre stage leading to invitations to perform in over 20 countries across the world. Her latest work ‘Blood and Gold’ explored the legacy of colonialism and slavery through an alternative lens and premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 to rave reviews and where it was nominated for the Filipa Braganca award. She is thrilled to be a part of Ake!
