Together with krump dancer Mamu Tshi, Faustin Linyekula went to the Congo in 2022 to follow in the footsteps of their respective ancestors. Together they create a dance portrait on their return from this introspective journey.

For his latest creation, Faustin Linyekula and the krump dancer Amandine Tshijanu Ngindu – stage name Mamu Tshi – compose a dance portrait. This name is directly linked to the origin of Faustin’s ancestors from the Kasai region. He took the opportunity of this encounter to bring together the life and dance of Mamu Tshi with the history of the Congo, which has been the driving force behind his dance since 1997. This piece is therefore a dialog between the dancer and the choreographer, a journey towards a Congo with contours mixed with reality and fantasy. A solo that will take on the appearance of an international communion in search of its founding origins. Faustin Linyukela and Amandine Tshijanu Ngindu offer an intercultural narrative and build bridges between two dances of protest: on the one hand the search for origins and on the other social violence.
