IN BITWIN PERFORMER;
PAPA PRINCE OMUGA TAYA
After completing his high school, Papa moved and settled permanently in Nairobi and tried his hand in many untrained jobs
He later realized that he needed to be in a professional field at least to get some skills in his work. He joined an African -Dance group (Kalahari African Dance Troupe) where he studied different types of African dances, drumming and culture related practices for two years thereafter selected to join a dance and theatre company, Kenya Performing Arts group (K-PAG) for another two years. Through which he studied Ballet, Jazz, Salsa, and Movement, Physical Theatre and whatever form or aspect of ART that came his way.
Papa has toured his own country Kenya, Burundi, Netherlands, UK and Belgium for international performances. He has offered both national and international dance workshops to primary, high schools, colleges, dance and theatre schools, prisons and in special schools for the hard students.
From all the experiences he has learnt to date, Papa is collaborating with Jade Pesaa with Directing and choreography of the “In Betweens” performance, in which they want to combine dance and theatre together to promote art in Kenya and offer our audiences something new.
In his community they say, ‘‘in as much as the hen will want to guard its chick from the eagle, it will also fear for its own life''!
