“An ethereal figure with a spirit of steel … an intellectual and practical force to be reckoned with” —The Star, South Africa
Dancer/choreographer Faustin Linyekula of Kinshasa, Congo, is one of the foremost figures in contemporary African dance, acknowledged not only for the power and artistry of his work, but also for his commitment to connecting art to African communities. His 30-minute solo installation/performance piece deals with themes of displacement and circulation that reference the dark part of his heritage and the commerce of colonization, decolonization, and organized tourism.
Linyekula returns to the Twin Cities this fall with his ensemble cast Les Studios Kabako to present Festival of Lies. To learn more about the residency, call 612.375.7624.
