Studios Kabako Company

Drums and Digging (2013)  creation


AMIDST THE UPS AND DOWNS OF THE HISTORY OF THE CONGO
Faustin Linyekula’s dancing is always confronted to words to provide evidence of the historical ups and downs of his country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Created out of trips he made with his company, the show brings together past and present in three stations, which take us from Mobutu’s ruined palace in Gbadolite, where performer Véronique Aka Kwadeba used to go, the Obilo village where Faustin Linyekula lived as a child and Kisangani where he started the Kabako Studios: “We will bring back magic and memories to our country”.
