Every night I rise anew – Philippa Namutebi Kabali-Kagwa

An interactive performance of poems that remind us of how, like the moon, we rise, and die again and again.

Philippa Namutebi Kabali-Kagwa: Storyteller. Mother. Writer. Memoirist. Dreamer. Work-in-progress. Ugandan-South African.

She is the co-founder, and co-host of The Story Club Cape Town, a monthly platform that promotes the art of oral storytelling in the CBD. Her writing paints pictures of the paradox of life – the way pain and joy often sit side by side, like family. She writes about identity, belonging, and migration, rooted in the experience of being woman, African and migrant.  She is the author of a memoir, written in prose and poetry, titled Flame and Song: a memoir; four children books and also published poetry in a number of anthologies.

This is her second year at the Mcgregor Poetry Festival. She has also performed at the Open Book Festival, the Womans Humanity Festival at Artscape, Nozincwadi Storytelling Festival in Durban, the Franshoek Literary Festival and Story Moja in Kenya.
