PASS in Amsterdam: Faustin Linyekula

Faustin Linyekula is Congolese artist, dancer, choreographer and founder of Studios Kabako in Kisangani.

Linyekula’s works are inspired by, among other forms, Ndombolo and examines his personal story within the context Congo’s rich yet tumultuous history. In Le Cargo (2011), exploring his own personal narrative, Linyekula investigates his relationship with dance, the physical language through which he has told his country’s stories, as he searches for traces of this cruel history on his body.

Faustin Linyekula will be on PASS in Amsterdam on Tuesday 13 December from 17:00 – 18:00.
