“An intellectual and practical force to be reckoned with.”
— The Star, South Africa
In this raucous and powerful dance theater performance, three dancers, including choreographer and director Faustin Linyekula, reflect on the political, social, and cultural history and present day struggles of the Congo. The dancers move to the dark poems of Antoine Vumilia Muhindo, a political prisoner in Kinshasa and childhood friend of Linyekula’s, set to driving music by Congolese guitarist Flamme Kapaya and his five-member on-stage band. The work seeks to present hope for a better future in the Congo.
The 2011 U.S. Tour of more more more… future is produced by MAPP International Productions in partnership with The Africa Contemporary Arts Consortium.
