dc.description.abstract This article examines the role and future of indigenous theatrical performances (ITPs) in peacebuilding in Kenya. It focuses on the Kikuyu, Luhya, and Luo communities’ traditions of ritual, storytelling, proverb, and song and dance as specific cases of ITPs in Kenya. While the main focus is on the current use of these art forms in peacebuilding initiatives, the article argues that ITPs can be a powerful tool in addressing structural and other forms of injustices that manifest themselves in conflicts. As such, ITPs can greatly contribute to peacebuilding efforts if a clear framework to support their application is developed. en_US
