Cut Off My Tongue is a dramatized  poetry performance that rants, sweats, breaks into song and dance as it explores the truths that shape us as Africans: our beliefs, the way we behave and why.

The dramatised poetry of Sitawa Namwalie, woven with music and dance, and infused with humour and satire, engages critical issues such as corruption and the post-election violence, and is a spirited invocation to Africans to colonise their own history. It is about land, about tribe, about politics, about personal discovery, about identity and relationships It is politics – and love – that is personal and palatable, rich in imagery, evoking the contradictions of life.

Cast: Sitawa Namwalie, Muthoni Garland, Alice Karunditu, Amimo Olembo, Chichi Seii, Shan Bartley, Joshua Ogutu Muraya, Grand Masese and Henry Anyanga.

Storymoja is a Kenyan publishing venture formed by a collective of writers committed to publishing contemporary East African writing.
