Toronto-based writer, poet, and hip hop artist Ian Kamau, a participant in The Theatre Centre’s Residency Program, performs at The Famous Spiegeltent to launch The Residents Project, Luminato’s on-going partnership with The Theatre Centre.

Through poetry, music, film and the story of his paternal grandmother Nora Elutha Rogers, Ian confronts his own struggle with depression as a catalyst to learn more about his family’s struggle with mental illness. Joining Ian as a performer and collaborator is Montreal-based musician and activist Stefan Christoff.

My desire is to put my experiences into the world so that I may enter a larger conversation with people in different places. I am an artist who wants to continue to be creative and support others in being creative while finding my purpose.”

– Ian Kamau
