Sept mouvements Congo

Michael Disanka

Kinshasa

 

Five young Kinois vent their rage, share their anxieties, and dream of survival: no aspect of the harsh reality of their daily life in the Congo is spared. A vibrant, captivating performance in four languages.

New horizons

For the actor, director and writer Michael Disanka, “writing is like photographing the instant with words”. It involves making each life experience his own. His documentary theatre gives a voice to thousands of human beings deprived of speech since night gave birth to the Congo… Divided into seven movements and performed in four languages*, the play deals with private and collective reality, hope and tragedy, and the explosion of latent rage that has been contained for far too long...until the liberating seventh movement, which promises survival.  

* Lingala, French, Kikongo, Swahili
