Feast in the Sky
Have you ever wondered what may have caused the piecemeal pattern of tortoise’s shell? Might this slow, yet cunning character have brought this misfortune upon himself? “The Feast in the Sky” is a colourful yet cautionary tale of birds and beast, that has been used to educate and warn against breaking norms of society. The story unravels when Lawino, our storyteller, runs into you and the three children Adongo, Opiyo and Ny’abung’u playing Kalongolongo and ‘cooking’ up a feast.
In this story, you assume the role of a young guest of the twin children Opiyo and Adongo, and together with their older sibling Ny’abung’u, are roped into a tale woven by Lawino the storyteller. Your role goes beyond that of a mere spectator, the children and Lawino acknowledge your presence, and from time to time ask you to perform a few tasks as the story unravels. The stories unfold within both the fantastical imagination of a child and a meticulously researched display of Luo culture in the transitionary period. The stories are meant to be viewed in order but individually, with this being the second in a set of three.
