Faustin Linyekula is a great dancer and a genuine storyteller. Here, in the first solo performance of his long international career, he uses these skills to bring us closer to a distant reality: his homeland of the Congo.

In this luminous, transfixing blend of dance, song, music and storytelling, Faustin traces his personal story, his return home after many years in Europe, and his relationship to dance.

Sitting on a carved stool, he builds a revealing dialogue with himself: has his contemporary mix of words and movement been too political, too wordy, to count as dance as his ancestors understood it?
Faustin Linyekula has a profound belief in art as a means of awakening, of creating breathing space, of seeding beauty where it’s most needed.

His work allies the pessimism of intelligence with the optimism of will: a marriage of body and spirit, moving, thought-provoking and spellbinding.
