Histoire(s) du Théâtre II

NTGent / Faustin Linyekula

What is theater? What do emotions and history mean on a stage? And can you find truth there? In the series Histoire(s) du Théâtre, directors and choreographers - with the most diverse backgrounds - examine these questions from a personal perspective. After director Milo Rau, it is now the turn of dancer, choreographer and theater director Faustin Linyekula.

Duration: nnb, no intermission

About

Together with dancers, including Papy Mbwiti from the National Ballet of Congo, and actor Oscar Van Rompay, who lives and works part of the year on his plantation in Kenya, Faustin Linyekula continues this research and shows us his personal view of the history of dance and theater in Africa in this production. To what extent does the past determine the present and even the future? Accompanied by Ray Lema's music, he challenges the basic techniques of 'real theater'.

Faustin Linyekula deals with postcolonial themes in his work, inspired by the cruel legacy of war, terror and a collapsing economy in his homeland of Congo. His work has been performed around the world since the nineties.
