The Dance Centre presents Global Dance Connections: Le Cargo by Faustin Linyekula


The Global Dance Connections series features boundary-busting contemporary dance created by Canadian and international artists.


Faustin Linyekula/Studios Kabako (Democratic Republic of the Congo)
Le Cargo
Thursday-Saturday January 29-31, 8pm
Post-show artist talkback January 30
Duration: 60 minutes

Presented with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival


The performances of Congolese choreographer Faustin Linyekula are indelibly etched by the experiences of his long-suffering homeland, and in this raw and intimate autobiographical solo he traces his own personal story, and his relationship to dance. Bearing witness to decades of war and terror through a potent blend of dance, song, music and storytelling, Linyekula counters these dark images with those of resourcefulness, hope, and a profound belief in the role of art as an antidote to crisis and a reaffirmation of life, as he travels a bold path of self-reflection and discovery.
