For over a year I worked with a dance group in Nairobi consisting mainly of dancers with physical disabilities. In Kenya disability is a taboo and the majority of people who are differently abled are hidden from society. PAMOJA (meaning together in Swahili) is a multi-abled and disabled professional dance group in Nairobi. The contradictions that embody the lives of the dancers is fascinating. Hidden from daily life and revealed on stage. Shunned by society and loved by the audience. Most individuals in the group were born and grew up into a life of serious adversity, and yet many, as a testimonial to their strength of character, are now the breadwinners of their families.
