Sarakasi Trust is a performing arts development organization that was established in Nairobi in December 2001 in response to the urgent need for further development and growth in the cultural and performing arts sector. The organization has been working in the field of Culture for Development since its establishment and has grown to be one of the leading organizations in culture and the performing arts in Eastern Africa. “Sarakasi” is the Kiswahili word for Circus or Acrobatics.
Sarakasi first hired office and training space from 2003 to 2008 at the Godown Art Centre in the industrial area of Nairobi, before outgrowing the available space for its rapidly growing training program. The Sarakasi Dome opened its doors in May 2008 as a multifunctional venue housing the Sarakasi offices, training, rehearsal, projects and performance spaces. From that time jugglers, dancers, drummers, acrobats and others have a custom made practice space that they can access easily and at low or even no cost.
