Een persoonlijk verhaal over de geschiedenis van Congo in dans, Jimi Hendrikx en het Requiem van Mozart - ik ben benieuwd!
Selected by: Jonne ter Braak, Dance ambassador

Mozart and Jimi Hendrix form the background of a political memory

Congolese choreographer and storyteller Faustin Linyekula will teleport us back in time with this political performance. Linyekula sheds a light on friends, poets and writers who were shut down or banished because of what they said like Richard Kabako who was buried by unknown individuals far away from his home, and author Antoine Vumilia Muhindo who was in prison for years awaiting his death sentence. Of course the story of hip hop dancer Dinozord is also told, with Jimi Hendrix and Mozart playing in the background.
