Ndoto ya Jane

Jane was the sewing lady of Barsheba, a very poor neighborhood in the city of Mombasa. Every day I went to talk to her, asking about her daydreams. Her biggest dream was to leave the slum. My work was then to find a kiosk for her, a place where she could work in a central place far away from her community; I worked with Barbara Minishi, a wonderful Nairobi base photographer, who helped me set up the kiosk and document Jane's dreams.

Due to the husband severity, Jane could not attend the performance, instead we set up a live-streaming video action with the image of her projected in the new space, giving her the possibility of working in her new environment.
