Nyatiti and Digital Media Manipulation
In the quest to universal story telling translation through visualisation
With the help of Arts Council of England Developing Your Creative Practice and under the mentorship of Fergus Dingle on filming and Opiyo Okach on digital media manipulation, Rapasa Nyatrapasa Otieno has been investigating how to use digital tools in his live performance to provide a fully interactive experience using live projection of interacting media. In this live display, captured live sound and movement interacts with one another and with images and prerecorded videos. Rapasa can use these tools to immerse and include his audience in the story told in his native tong Dholuo. It makes spectacular shows which he did a pilot of at Sage Gateshead Hall 1 on the 19 June 2021 and which he further developed during his residency with Britten Pears Arts in February 2022.
Success means that not only Rapasa is planing to use these tools in the tour of his work KWEChE for which he developed this but envisage to use when touring other works.
